I found an old Dutch-English dictionary online that helps deciphering old Dutch records

I stumbled upon this Dutch-English dictionary from 1801, and I'm finding it very helpful for translating words I find in old Dutch records: https://books.google.com/books?id=t48NAAAAQAAJ

That's a U.S. Google link. For other countries, replace "com" with the domain extension for Google in your country.

You may also find it useful, so I share it here.

Vonderbaar. Old English is partly based on Anglo Saxon. The Angles came from Friesia. I find many Frie, Fry, Fre based words in my research. connected to the mythologies of Freya  and "place of the Friesians" etc.  Also Hennegouen Henneau etc.
