Aaltje van ‘t Land

A page from the Putten baptism book, with baptisms from 1767. In the middle of the page is Aaltje, daughter of Theunis Harmse and Grietje Johannesse, from Huynen (nowadays known as Huinen), a hamlet near Putten. She was baptized on 8 March 1767. Aaltje’s surname is not listed on the page. Maybe the family did not use it yet, at the time, or maybe it was just not written down. From later records I know the surname is Van ‘t Land. Aaltje van ‘t Land (1767-1853) is my 5th great-grandmother. I descend from her son Jacob Prins,...

Church Sunday: Arnhem

St. Walburg’s church, Arnhem. Late-medieval (14th century) catholic church, devoted to St. Walburg (a.k.a. St. Walburgis, St. Walburga). After the reformation the building was used as prison and arsenal (among others). In 1808 it was returned to the Catholic church. The left tower collapsed (and was rebuilt) after a badly executed renovation in the 19th century. The church was largely destroyed during the battle of Arnhem (part of Operation Market Garden) in 1944, and rebuilt after the war. Since 1964 the church is a...
