The "Brocx Connection" or the Lost connection
The history goes back to the years 1945 where Anton Gustaaf ("The Indo Prince Bernard") was playing the casanova of Bandung. Instead of playing around with girlfriends of his own age, he chose to fly from one woman to another.
The problem however was that both women already had children.
In flying from one flower to another in 1946 a child was born, a boy named Roelof Anton and in 1948 another child was born a girl named Inge. these affairs led that Casanova (Indo Prince Anton) beget children with more than one woman.
However the thing is that we did not know of the existance of these 2 children. It seemed that this should al stay a secret.
In 2016 however a linked-in connection request with the message we may be family tirggered us to invetigate further and further which finally led to a meeting between Roel, his daughter Ellen with Charles and his family.
By the way this visit was very enjoyable and was after 70 years not even awkward and both families agreed that this visit should have taken place long time ago.
So in one day we thought we were only 2 (two) my brother Guus died in 1967, and now we have a brother a sister and a couple of nices and nephews.
You need to have strong nerves to get this kind of news on the age of 60+
