I think there is convincing evidence that the source for the birth of Wilhelmina is incorrect and is for a different person: Willemina daughter of Pytter de Neeff. Please see comment posted on her profile.

Wow, yes this is what you say and should be changed - disconnected and replaced
Thank you for agreeing Navarro!

I'll wait for further support from Dutch Roots and/or New Netherlands Settlers project members before moving forward.
I wish I could read Dutch - can a little French and Spanish - but the Dutch is all greek to me - ha ha

I like to look at these kinds of threads and learn new things - and have had wrong parents on my trees and it is a chore to correct that - good luck

I have a problem with more than just her birth date, but also the fact that her Farther, Garret, profile says he  Emigrated to America (United States) about 1662/63 and Lived in what is now New York City between 1663 and 1690. If that statement is true she couldn't have been born in the Netherlands, but NY.

Plus they have her date of birth as Mar 1673 and her sisters as Sep 1673.  Not sure that can happen.  Alot more research needs to be done on  the DeWess family, IMO.
