Subject: [SRILANKA] look-ups & translation of old VOC title
Hello to Larry & Coreen (& all the listers), thanks so much for your
offer to do look-ups & what a response you've had!
The names I'm researching are HESSE, SCHARENGUIVEL, de JONK & MILHUYSEN.
Any help you could give would be much appreciated.
Also, would anybody be able to help me with some Old Dutch words? On a
genealogy, long in my family's possession, it states that an ancestor
was sent to Ceylon from Amsterdam as "Vicle Dutch Acle Boelen" (1738),
I've even asked the Hague for help, they replied that 'boelen' could
have meant 'goods', but the entire title still remains a mystery.
Best wishes to all,
Jennifer in Melbourne
