Thank you Kees:
Spelling wasn't important for 200 of the last 300 years. So, I think that there are no "correct" spellings in genealogy. However, I understand that you want the
Dutch "correct" spellings:
Van Den Berg ===> van den Berg (surname) and as family name Van den Berg, so it is "Gijsbert van den Berg" and "the family Van den Berg" Ariantje ===> Ariaantje
Cornelius ===> Cornelis (the name Cornelius does not exist in the
Jannetie ===> Jannetje
Marritje ===> Marietje
Barent Gerritse ===> Barent Gerritsz (however I know in English speaking countries "Gerritse" is seen as the right spelling). Gerritz is short for Gerritszoon, son of Gerrit
Claas Cornelise ===> Claas Cornelisz = Claas (or Klaas) son of Cornelis And ..... if Claas had a sister Annetje, than Annetje would be Annetje Cornelisse = Annetje daughter of Cornelis.
Hope this helps other researchers,
