Today I finally finished my Super-Duper-Handy-Dandy Dutch Birth Record Translation Helper. This is actually just a pdf form I created to help me translate/make sense of the birth records I’ve found so far for the LEMMENS family. Essentially, the ‘fillable’ fields are where the genealogical information was recorded on the original. I have tried to make it look as similar to the original record as possible so that I don’t lose myself in the language.
I will probably fine-tune the pdf as I continue to use it but will make it available in my Useful Links section as a download, in case it helps anyone out there. If you share it, please link to this post rather than the direct link – thank you!
I also made up a little Dutch Number ready reckoner so that I can translate the numbers more easily.
