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
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...
