This Immigrant has the source for birth so should the category be changed from Dutch Roots needs birth to just plain Dutch Roots?

Beginner in the category department here or I would attempt to edit it myself

Hi Navarro,

You are probably seeing the 1650 baptism of son Hendrick as a birth source, but there is no source yet for the 1629 birth of Claes...

oh no - I thought that Dutch stuff was marriage that contained his birthdate - I saw the signatures so I figured any dates would be therefore valid and confirmed - my bad I should not have assumed that

I can read a little (very little) French and Spanish - but Dutch is not in my skill set

We Dutch understand it's a difficult language for non-Dutch, so we try to do English biographies mostly. The original primary sources of course are in Dutch. But the translation of vital events should not be too hard:

  • Geboorte = Birth
  • Doop = Baptism
  • Huwelijk = Marriage
  • Trouwen = Marriage
  • Overlijden = Death
  • Begraven = Burial
learning - writing these in my notebook - two very different words for marriage
