Last Revised: 19 August 2010 (Rozalia Duerinck data; previously -- P.G. Duerinck passport application toward the bottom)


Thank you for the assistance of Jacqueline Duerinck, Davy Duerinck, Douwe van der Meer, and Carlo Buysrogge. A lot of data was found using databases found at Zeeuwsarchief and Genlias. To send corrections, send them to the web master, Kevin.

NOTE: Previously I had heard from 2 different sources that around 1900 the church in Boskapelle, Netherlands burned down, with all the birth and death records. My Nederland contact states that "this is untrue. The church of Boschkapelle never burned down. The churchbooks are still available to read; the books until 1800 are in the archives of Middelburg and those after 1800 are either still at the church, or were recently brought to Middelburg as well." In any event, however, we have found that the ancestor Ambrosius Duerinck was baptized in Meerdonk, Belgium in 1744, died in Clinge 13 March 1794, and his parents are now known. His dad, Joannes, was not born in Meerdonk, and does not appear to have been born in Vrasene, and was married in neither town. So we will have to search for the town of Joannes Durinck's birth. I did not order the index/tafel of deaths for Meerdonk/Vracene.
