About Ds Arnoldus Mauritius Meiring, SV/PROG

The following is an entry in Freren Church records which give different dates ( and I would suggest more accurate dates ) for AAMs father Albertus "1717 9th May. This morning at 6hours the Rev Albertus Meeringh, minister of the gospel of this congregation (Freren) passed away in his 69th year of his age, and in the 39th year of his ministering and was buried in front of the pulpit on the 13th." I would value your comments and any information to help me progress my research into the forbears of Albertus. The same church record says his first born (twins) were born in Steenbergen. His first wife was Machtild Lawina van Maerle. All the other children were born in Freren. Contributed By Peter Meiring and worth looking into.
