Zuiker Chronicles Online is a website community for the extended Zuiker family. We invite you to visit this website to learn more about us.
The name Zuiker comes from the Dutch word for sugar (suiker). Our relatives came from Holland in the 1890s, and settled in Chicago. Another branch of the Zuikers settled in northern Wisconsin. As you'll see from this site, today Zuikers are spread across the USA.
For many decades various members of the Zuiker family, starting with Francis Zuiker, have written and distributed newsletters titled Zuiker Chronicles. Most often, these newsletters shared the happenings of the author and his or her nuclear family. But just as often they detailed the travels and travails of the larger family -- the marriages and vacations, reunions and jamborees.
As Francis was nearing the end of his amazing life, we began an online version of the Zuiker Chronicles. Zuiker Chronicles Online is dedicated to the memory of Frank the Beachcomber, Frank the writer and Frank the creative patriarch. See this tribute to him. Also, see a collection of Frank's black-and-white photos.
Zuiker Chronicles Online is administered by Anton Zuiker. Questions about the site, suggestions for improvements and story or photograph contributions should be sent to email@example.com.
