Ten Eyck Documents

Coenradt Ten Eyck came from the town of Moers, in Germany. He arrived in New Netherland sometime in the 1650's, and became quite prosperous. A copy of his marrigae record is shown below, with a translation for those who do not read archaic German! It comes from a wonderful book entitled New Netherland Roots by Gwenn F. Epperson. If anyone knows where I can get in touch with her, please let me know!
