Hi Carol, 

Here's the translation: 

17 May 1945, at one o'clock, passed away in Uithuizen, Moolenaar, Cornelis Arnoldus, 12 years of age, without occupation, living and born in Amsterdam, son of Moolenaar, Hendrik Cornelis, paper merchant and of: Tilburgs, Ferdinanda Sophia Frederika, without occupation, both living in Amsterdam. The declaration of the death has been done by: Dijkens, Klaas professional undertaker, age 41 and living in Uithuizen who claimed to have knowledge of his own about this death (he knows for a fact or something like it) 

This deed was drawn up by me, officer of civil status of the municipality Uithuizen and read on May 18, 1945

And in the margin it says: In adjacent Act approved cancellation of a printed word on the seventh row from the top

Hope it helps :)

Most appreciated

Yes it many times does ..just feel free to add any questions you have here and we can try to find the answers :)

Cornelis was resident in Amsterdam. However, the winter of 1944/1945 (WW II) in the Netherlands is known as the "hungerwinter": food was very, very scarce, especially in the cities in the western parts. So some parents with family or acquaintances in the rural areas sent their children to stay there (where food was abundant). It could very well be this applied to Cornelis.

There is a "archiefkaart" of Cornelis in the archive of his home town Amsterdam. Next year the image of this card can freely be downloaded, but I can mail it to you now if you like.

 

Thank you Jan. That would be fantastic if you could do that. I know my grandmother used to take the 2 boys on her bike and go and dig for potatoes in the snow. Living in New Zealand i need to keep these stories alive for my grandchildren

Many Thanks for your kind offer

Carol
