RE: Christopher Almy

I'll send you the portion in Dutch, and a purported translation, along with the background of why I asked. It may result in relative confirmation of the translation, but having more than one person saying the same translation adds weight.

It involves my maternal ancestor, Bridget White, sole wife and widow of John Robinson (1576-1625), pastor of the 1620 Mayflower Pilgrims at Leiden, Holland. Her will was written by a notary at Leiden in October 1643.

I'm knee deep in some work, so may take me a couple of days to provide.

RE: Christopher Almy
By the way,

Due to your association with Dutch oriented entities-organizations, do you know of someone versed in old Dutch who can provide me with a literal translation of a small portion of my ancestor's 1643 will of record at Leiden, Holland?
