Thank you very much for this information. I don't even know where to look for Dutch genealogical information prior to 1700, and your link and another one have been very useful.
Not being a native Dutch speaker (I'm in the U.S.), I've been trying to figure out listings in Dutch via Google Translate which, however, doesn't translate abbreviations. Or some of the words. But I've muddled through.
Any suggestions as to where I might find more information about my ancestors in the 1600's?
