    M. H. Decker (US) says...
    almost all sources show Jan Gerritsen Decker born in Heerde, Gelderland, Netherlands (or Dutch Republic) including authoritative sites like www.deckerjourney.com and Barry Downs book on the Deckers, I agree boundaries in the area were fluid back then, but what makes you say Germany? also, what is the source of the info on Jan's father Gerrit Focken, Abt 1614, of, Woerden, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands? (by the way if true more evidence Jan is Dutch)
