According to the information I have, my great grandfather, Cornelius Geurts, was born in Vierlingsbeek on 9 October 1851 and his parents were Arnold Geurts and Marie Kerstens.
I have been unable to find any records for him in the Netherlands, particularly a birth record, even though I have found birth records for his siblings and his parents.
He came to Little Chute in the US, then homesteaded in Minnesota and I have those records.
I don't speak Dutch, but I have had pretty good success on the BHIC website with other ancestors. Does anyone have any recommendations about finding a birth record?
