Rosalie is missing. They come from Etterbeek and Veltem-Beisem in Belgium.
The family François Menten (1929-1998) and Elisabeth Mommaerts (born in Leuven in 1936), daughter of Guillaume and Maria, emigrated to Canada in 1956. They married in Jette, Belgium.
Elisabeth's parents and brothers and sister came afterwards and emigrated in 1957.
The meaning of the name "Mommaerts" must therefore be sought in Belgium.
The name Mommaerts is divided into two parts:
Momm: guise, mask, disguise
(See Gerardus mummo anno 1177)
Mommaas, Mommers: Off Mommaers
Aert(s): Nature, quality, feature, character, method or way of action.
