Hi I saw you refer to my aunt Alma Doris (Kersh) Howell. I have a question as to the date of birth of Andrew Kersh son of Hans. My records show that he was born about 1750. In other information my aunt says that Andrew was "bound out" to pay forthe families passage. As they arrived in 1744 it would seem that he would have to be at least in his teens before somebody would take him as a worker. If you have any information on Andrews date of birth I would appreciate if you would share.I have also put several messages on the net to see if anybody knows if the Dutch kept any "exit" records on people that immigrated for Rotterdam. I have not received any answers to this yet. I would be happy to share any information that I have.
