Hi Werner,
What town in the Netherlands and surname are you looking at? Are you
looking on the WieWasWie.nl and Akevoth.org websites? I would like to
see what you are looking at. On Akevoth they will sometimes include
the researchers explanation for things as well as include additional
information.

I have seen siblings with the same or similar names, in fact I have at
least two instances on my tree that I can think of. Though one of
those instances I think is a mistake but I will need to go back to
Amsterdam to verify.

In any case I have found that in researching my Dutch ancestry that
naming conventions tend to go out the window. One thing I know off
hand you can expect to see is kids named after living relatives. And
don't even get me started on surnames...

The official Dutch nineteenth century records of one Jewish family

A confirmation of this seeming curious practice are the marriage
records of the two sisters wherein the parents names are identical.
Can anyone explain this anomaly?
