Amenuensis Monday: Lodewijk Wesselo and Elizabeth Lubach

I'm joining in Amenuensis Monday, the weekly blogging theme hosted by John Newark of Transylvanian Dutch Genealogy. I will transcribe and translate documents, the transcriptions will go directly into my genealogy database and the translations will be posted here. The translations will be in modern language with modern spelling, as it's hard enough to translate already!

My current project is the Wesselo family documents of the generations I am researching this year. I'm starting with Lodewijk Wesselo, the eldest son of the second marriage of Hendrik Wesselo, and his wife Elisabeth Lubach.


Today: the birth certificates of Lodewijk and Elisabeth. Italics are handwritten, the rest is printed.

Birth Certificate Lodewijk Wesselo:

On the twenty-third of the month December eighteen hundred seventy-five is for us Major civil servant of the municipal registry of Voorschoten in city hall has appeared Hendrik Wesselo silversmith old thirty-five years, living here, who has stated that on the twenty-second this [month] in the morning at half past seven hours, in this town in his own house a child was born of the male sex, from Alida Petronella van Grasstek without profession living in his own house, his wife, which will be named Lodewijk.

Of this statement we have made this certificate, in the presence of Lodewijk van Grasstek, silversmith old fifty-eight years, living here and of Abraham Bernardus van Grasstek, traveler, old twenty-seven years, living here and is thus, after reading it out loud, signed by us, the appearer and the witnesses.

Notes:
1. The major was Jacob Petrus Treub, he was the major of Voorschoten from 1841 until his death in 1887.
2. Lodewijk van Grasstek is the father of Alida Petronella
3. Abraham Bernardus van Grasstek is the brother of Alida Petronella

Of this statement we have made this certificate, in the presence of Hendrik Munsterman, goldsmith old twenty-four years, living here and of Hendrik Christiaan Yperlaan, silversmith, old twenty-eight years, living here and is thus, after reading it out loud, signed by us, the appearer and the witnesses.

2. The witnesses are probably co-workers of Dirk Lubach, given their professions.
