1488RE: [Friesland-genealogy] napoleonic decree of 1811/Naming of children
- Jul 8, 2000Everybody doing (Frisian)genealogy soon discovers this (unique?) patron
And custom of naming children. How ever far you go back, you find this
Strict tradition. Which makes it so fascinating for me to go through the
Generations and even see your own name, like in my case, back hundreds
Of years ago. How about Lykele Helmigs (my 260), born Olterterp around
Married Taetske Uytzes,born Beetsterzwaag 27 March 1709?
I am aware that I am from the generation that ended this
Why? Also a result of a sort cultural revolution. Interesting thing that
years ago I
Met with a Japanese banker, with whom I shared my genealogical hobby and
He mentioned that exactly the same process had taken place in his country.
So instead of Aaltje, Lolkje, Daniella and Lieuwkje, our daughters were
Alice, Hester Louise, Daniella (my father-in-law Daniel, so pretty
and Leontina Marjolijn.
If I knew then what I know now
