Welcome to the English part of the site of Ronald & Blue. . (v4.0)
The Dutch site has been improved, you're next! A lot of thing are not in perfect working order yet, but hopefully will be soon. Sorry for the inconveniance.

The name of the site is in Old Dutch. "Den Blauwen Swaen" translates as "The Blue Swan". One of Ronald's ancestors owned a pub named "Den Swaen" (The Swan). If you want to know more, check out our family history. Blauw is just Dutch for Blue, so that's obvious...
Parts of this site are still under construction, but we are almost done.
If you click on any of the pictures, most of them will leed you to a nice photoalbum.

If you want to know about any up-date on this site or if you want to give us some feedback (we love feedback), you can send us an e-mail. If you leave your e-mailadres, you get a message every time something new is added to The Blue Swan. It's also possible to follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
