Descendants of Gabriel VERNATTI
(before about 1700)

This page was compiled around 20 years ago from research I did in the mid 1990s, without the benefit of the vast array of information now available via the internet. My main source of information at that time was Nieuw Nederlandsch Biografisch Woordenbock (notwithstanding my somewhat limited understanding of Dutch), supplemented with details from other publications, wills, marriage licences, parish registers and transcripts - see also below.

I have now (2020) made some corrections and additions to this page, but only within those family groups that were already included here. Some details remain unchanged and the dates given for some marriages may still be those of the licence or banns rather than the marriage itself. I have no plans to extend my research into this extended family but hope the information here may nevertheless prove useful to anyone interested in doing so.

(Please note that I offer no guarantee that the information given below is either complete or correct!)
