Need help with reading Dutch records please

+8 votes

I saw elsewhere on the internet a date given for the baptism of my distant grandfather, Reynier. After looking at the record in the Valkenburg book I think I see what they're seeing. Can anyone confirm?

Pieter Pietersz Bontetas - ??? Maritg? syn ?? - Reijn - 6 April 1653

Additionally these records might be relevant:

Pieter Pietersz - syn moeder Nellitg? and ? - Pieter & Wouter (right page, eleventh entry)

Pieter Pietersz (?) - Pieter ??? syn vader - ??? (left page, second entry)

I swear I've read the Valkenburg book 1000 times but never noticed these. The GaHetNa scans are so much better though.

Hi Carrie, I tried to decipher but it is very hard. At the second image I read:

Pieter Pietersz sijn moeder nelhtgie -------Pieterz

sijn suster ------------------Wouter ?????  December? 24 1645

On the third:

Pieter Pietersz, Pieter Gillisz sijn vader -------- Gillis 23 februari 1643 (if you look at the page of this image in July there is a name Gerrits written. Compare the first letter with the first letter of Gillisz, I think they are the same).

The first image is very hard to read. I've been looking at other pages to see if I could find the same names somewhere else hoping they would be more readable. So far no luck.

Wild guess on the first image:

Pieter Pieterz Bontentas  ---Woutering ?epaas en maritgen Reijnes Sijn neef en nicht --------- Reijn 6 april 1653.

Just a little bit of help I hope Carrie, I am sorry.

That helps very much, Astrid. Thank you!

If the name in the third is Gillis, it's probably not for my family.
Thank you Carrie! Happy hunting! :)
