This week I obtained the image below which is from Anje De Vries‘ family Bible.  I’m pretty excited about it because Jakob & Anje were my great, great, great grandparents.  Their daughter, Maria (Mary) was my great, great grandmother.

I had a bit of trouble either transcribing or translating a few of the lines so I’d be thrilled to receive a more accurate translation.   Update 7/15/11:  Thank you to a reader (Peter) for the corrections and translation suggestions.
