15258Dutch Translators Needed Please
- May 31, 2012Many years ago Wilma J. Vande Berg of the Greater Sioux County
Genealogical Society sent me a series of newspaper articles from the
De Volksvriend Dutch Language Newspaper of Orange City, Sioux Co.,
Iowa. At that time I recruited three volunteers to translate them.
They are Anton Vedders, Eric Postma, Peter van Schaik whom I have
lost track of. I took what they translated and published it online.
Recently I stumbled on some more articles which I had either had
translated, not published, and lost the translations to or, never had
translated. So once again I am seeking someone who can translate
Dutch. Understand this is not modern Dutch but rather the old Dutch
this makes translation a little more difficult. A lot of the articles
are one sentence example Mrs L D Hobson went to see her sister
yesterday, although a few are a little lengthy, describing Political
or Civic meetings they had attended. These articles are from the mid
1880s through the late 1890s.
If I get more then 1 volunteer as I did last time I will split them up
evenly. These articles concern my G-g-father L D Hobson Esq., whom I
am now writing a book about. Any help would be appreciated.
