Is there another place here in this group where we discuss translation? I have a dim memory of this but can't find it. Moderator: Feel free to move this somewhere else it it would be more appropriate.
In researching old Dutch records on the Dutch sites, I come across records listed under the word "trouwen" and other records listed under the word "huwelijk;" both of these words are translated as Marriage. I have a suspicion that "trouwen" might truly be "betrothal" but have no verification of this. If NOT "betrothal" and "marriage," why are there two words for marriage?
