Homepage of Harry Broeders.
I was born on 24 December 1962 in the hospital of Dirksland which is a small village on the island Goeree-Overflakkee in the Netherlands. My mother expected me two weeks earlier but they had to come and get me because I wanted to wait for Christmas. I was raised in a very small village called Zuidzijde (link points to information in Dutch) which is also on the island Goeree-Overflakkee. I have one brother called Richard. In july 1986 I graduated from the Rijswijk Institute of Technology where I also got my first (and until now only) job. In june 1987 I married to Marie-Louise van Vugt and we moved to Oude-Tonge (also on Goeree-Overflakkee). In 1990 my first daughter Anne was born followed by my two sons Theo in 1992 and Koen in 1993. My second daughter Linda was born in 1996. In 2010 I graduated from the Delft University of Technology.
The Genealogy of my Family:
Sorry no time to fill this in,
In 1982 I graduated from "MTS Zuid" in Rotterdam (some sort of vocational education). You can see my grades here. Modesty was never one of my virtues ;-)
In 1986 I got my Bachelor's degree (cum laude) from "r.-k. HTS Rijswijk". You can see my grades here.
In 2007 I went back to school and started a Master's of Science study Embedded Systems at Delft University. I'm very grateful to my employer for giving me this opportunity and 2 days for studying each week. In december 2010 I graduaded (cum laude). You can see my grades here. Here are some products from my study:
|In 2011 I was elected lecturer of the year (Academie Docent) at "Academie voor Technology, Innovation & Society Delft"!|

|By the way, my wife is selling environment friendly cleaning equipment
called Ha-Ra. You
can clean with a Ha-Ra cloth and only water so you don't need any chemicals
any more! Unbelievable but true. If you want more information please send
an e-mail to Marie-Louise at
In 2011 my wife and I visited the American Southwest. My wife kept a blog (in Dutch) which you can find here: http://harryenmarielouise.waarbenjij.nu/. The pictiures from the blog can be found here: http://harryenmarielouise.waarbenjij.nu/?page=pictures&intTravelId=333929
In 2011 my friend Harry and I rowed around the island Goeree-Overflakkee in a canoe. It took us 3 days. The route we follow is shown below and some pictures can be found here.
In the summer of 2006 my family travelled north-west canada by camper. We took about 1800 pictures. The 43 I liked most can be found here.
