Throughout his life Rod Westmaas has had a desire to uncover his family's past. He had heard about the original Westmaas, Johannes Isaac, who had made his way to the 'new world' from Holland in the early 1700's. Settling first in Suriname the family later expanded and some moved to Essequibo, Guiana.
