Question on Dutch Genealogy #general


Paula Blank
 

I'm hoping that someone who understands Dutch Jewish genealogy can help me out.

Dutchjewry.org has a family tree called "Ashkenazi Jews of the 18th century"
which my ancestors are on. On the tree there is Barend BERMAN COHEN-MINEKEDOM
who died in 1689 (Amsterdam). His wife is Breinele (died 1687).

This can be found at http://dutchjewry.org/genealogy/ashkenazi/1592.htm

Dutchjewry.org has a page on the town Monnikendam (9 miles >from Amsterdam)
where there were only 9 jewish men including Barent JACOBS COHEN. (Barend, in
the tree, has a son Jacob). I'm sure these are the same person, but Barent is
supposedly married to Maritgen JACOBS LEVI who outlives him.

This can be found at

Any ideas how to reconcile the two?

Thanks!
