Who are these people? I recognize name Van Cutsem but no others. Are they for the most part people who descend from houses no longer recognized by the countries in which they live? For the most part I can't even figure out what country that live in. Yes, in a few cases, I can surmise, as Aldenburg sound like a German name. Would that be like a very rich person in America having a child, like Bill Gates?
The Douglas, Dukes of Hamilton etc are Scottish aristocracy. Many of the others are German, Italian. Nobilty of those countries, socially if not legally recognised.
