Civil Service
Group Europa Djakarta

Akte Perkawinan = marriage certificate
From 2 e line:……..bahwa di Djarkarta……..:=
That in Djakarta on the 28 of July 1884 a marriage took place
between William Drijsdale born in Timor Kupang aged 24 son of
Thomas Cochrane Drijsdale and Neeltje Adolphina Hazaart.
And
Frederika Catharina Claus born in Djakarta aged 23 daughter of
Frederik Coenraad Claus and Johanna Godeus -------
This quote is appropriate with the current situation in Djakarta ,the second of March1953.
See for confirmation of the above from:---
Loemban Tobing,Iskander Moeda,--- extra ordinary civil servant in Djakarta.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
