TThis Descendant Journal contains all the descendants of Jan VOORHEIJ and Belijtje HENDRIKS that I have been able to identify to-date. The had at least one son, Aelbert Jansz VOORHEIJ (1643-1699). Aelbert married Maertjen Maertens ARENTS (1643-1673)  in Katwijk aan Zee in 1665 and they had at least five children that I am aware of. Their daughter Belijtje VOORHEIJ, the subject of the Pedigree Chart below married Arij van RHIJN, being my direct ancestor. After Belijtje's mother passed away Aelbert remarried Machtelt Pieters and they had at least two children.Unfortunately in the fall of 1699 Aelbert was  lost in the North Sea just off the coast of Egmond aan Zee.
