last updated : 25-08-2008 ... translation, translate, translated from Dutch to English ...

On this page you can find translations of the Dutch terms used in our genealogy pages (like: verm., ald., eerste, etc.) and translations of most of the professions that occur in our genealogical data.

The proffesions are in the original spelling as found on the archive records, some are out of date and no longer in use or still used but in a newer spelling.
The translation was made with two Dutch to English dictionary's and an old Dutch dictionary.
Sometimes it was difficult and only a discription could be given. It also occured that some professions have a male and female spelling in the Dutch language and in English one spelling, if a profession is in the Dutch female spelling and there was no female spelling of this profession in the English language it is mentioned by putting (female) before the translation.
As English is not our native tongue there will be 'some' mistakes in the spelling (to many spaces, in the wrong order, etc.).
Still we have tried to give a translation of the professions as accurate as possible and hope that it might be usefull to who is interrested.

If you might have any suggestions or corrections for this page you can always send them to us using the e-mail link on our homepage.
