Geertje Willems and Gertruy Willems van Boerum have long been confused.
Geertruy/Geertje Willams van Boerum has a confirmed baptismal date in Amsterdam 26 Dec. 1645 (Henry Macy Jr. NYBGS v. 122 1992
) She marr. about 1665 Gerrit Lubberts-among their children was recorded "Cornelia" bapt. 30 Jan. 1681 in Flatbush.)DRC records)
Geertje Willems from AMsterdam is listed as ships passenger on "Bever" left 19 May 1661 arrived 29 July 1661. (Ships records from Olivetree Genalogy)
She married 26 Sept. 1661 Francois Dupuis. Among their children was "Geertje" bapt.18 Sept. 1681.(DRC records)
Corrections should be made as clearly the "eminent sources" have confused those two women.
