My names

According to Dutch naming traditions Coen should have been named Cornelis after his grandfather, but his parents decided it was too old fashioned. It did upset the grandfather for a bit, but he came around in the end and named a boat after him,

Cornelis Dijkgraaf (1908-1993) on the boat Coentje

I'm fluent in English, and get by in Dutch as I didn't speak or read it much for quite a few years since I was ten, but doing genealogy has improved it a bit again. Sometimes to translate to or from Dutch I will use Deepl.com or Google translate
