Recording community meetings

Hi Mark, I've noticed that you have set-up the last couple of community meetings. On November 16, I remember you started the recording once the meeting got underway. This week (November 23) I don't believe the meeting was recorded. I think there is a way, that when you create the meeting, you can make it auto-record. Fran I'm sure would show you how that can be done. If you could do this in the future it would help ensure the meeting is recorded. :) --Steve 22:32, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Community meeting 11 Jan 2011

Hi Mark, I was not able to join the scheduled meeting today (11 January 2011). When using the code provided I was told the meeting was in the past! Also when I've tried to review recordings of previous meetings I'm unable to. The message received is that Your session has expired. You will need to login again. --Steve 21:38, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Sur une liste de « Hamburgers (citoyens) » venus à Utrecht

http://www.den-braber.nl/vpnd/ut/utrecht_burgers.html on trouve Jacques, inscrit le 13 décembre 1617 comme « als trijpwerker » (tisserand de velours).Il est seulement mentionné qu'il est venu de "Welslant"ou "Wa(a)lslant", qui signifie « la terre des Wallons », probablement la Wallonie, mais vu d’Utrecht à cette époque cela pourrait aussi avoir été la France. Il est dommage que la ville ne soit pas mentionnée. Son nom est écrit Jacques "Corliere", ou probablement "Cortilje", c’est difficile à lire. La liste a été dressée en 1887, et probablement chaque Hamburger ne figure pas forcément dessus. Si ABRAHAM, son père, est venu à Utrecht, il n'avait peut-être pas les moyens de devenir un « Hamburger ».

« Jacques était un Wallon, groupe de français catholiques persécutés pour leur croyance.

Ils ont quitté la France autour de 1600 et ont cherché refuge au Danemark ( ?) où leurs croyances ont été tolérées. Après être resté au Danemark ( ?) pendant environ 40-50 années, beaucoup de membres du groupe sont passés en Amérique où ils se sont installés à New Amsterdam dans ce qui est maintenant New York City.( Henry Stiles, http://moa.umdl.umich.edu/) » « Il y avait beaucoup de personnes qui ont émigré de Hollande qui étaient d'origine wallonne. Quand le sanguinaire duc d'Alva a hérité des Pays Bas espagnols en 1567, revêtu de la puissance despotique sur les provinces par le fanatique Philip II., plus de 100.000 des protestants des provinces wallonnes se sont sauvés en Angleterre, sous la protection de la reine Elizabeth, ou chez leurs frères de Zeeland et de Nederland. Ils ont gardé leur langue, celle de la Gaule ancienne, et ont été connus en Angleterre comme Wallons, et en Hollande comme Waalen, du nom de leur province, appelée « Gaulsche », ou, tel que ce mot était prononcé, « Waalsche ». Le nombre de fugitifs de la persécution religieuse a été augmenté en même temps par le flux des protestants de France, et encore, cinq ans après, par le massacre mémorable de la St Barthélémy. Quand la Compagnie des Indes Occidentales les a recrutés, plusieurs de ces personnes et leurs descendants ont cherché à s’établir aux Nouveaux Pays Bas. Tels étaient les fondateurs des familles Rapelye, Cortelyou, Dubois, De Bevoise, Duryea, Crommelin, Conselyes, Montague, Fontaine, et d'autres. Le Waalebocht, ou secteur des Wallons, était ainsi appelé parce que certains d'entre eux s’installèrent à cet endroit. ». Le 7 novembre 1651, l’Honorable Cornelis van Werckhoven, un des édiles (« schepens ») du vieil Utrecht, a donné avis à la Chambre d'Amsterdam de son intention d’implanter deux colonies dans les limites territoriales des Nouveaux Pays-Bas. (Cf. Documents Relating to the Colonial History of New York ed. by O'Callaghan and Fernow; vol 13, p. 29 & pp. 33-34; vol 14, p. 190). "Si les familles Corteljou (on prononçait ‘Cortelyow’) et van Werckhoven étaient amies, ou autrement dit comment le Conseiller a été mis en contact avec le jeune Jaques, sont des détails qui ont été perdus. Mais les qualifications de Jaques doivent avoir été évaluées d’un niveau suffisant pour justifier sa sélection pour accompagner la famille aux Amériques en 1652 en tant que précepteur privé des jeunes Pieter et Cornelis van Werckhoven."

Ils ont peut-être voyagé sur le navire “The Flower of Gelder” (Geldersche Blom), armateur W. van Twiller, arrivé à New Amsterdam le 24 Juillet 1652?

“Arent van Hattum was an early Burgomaster of New Amsterdam in 1653 and 1654. Arent came here with Cornelis van Werckhoven, the founder of New Utrecht, and like Cornelis eventually returned also to Patria.”

Jaques Cortelyou avait été nommé, vue sa bonne réputation, et sur requête pressante de van Werckhoven, « Schout* de la Nouvelle Amsterdam» , une fonction combinant celles de shérif, de procureur et de président de la cour de justice de la Nouvelle Amsterdam, le 21 juillet 1654 ; ayant des scrupules à en respecter les instructions, il avait refusé cette proposition (16 septembre 1654). (*« The schout and schepens mentioned in this first charter to a Dutch town are the officers of the local court. The schout corresponded in the main to the modern prosecuting attorney, although at times his duties took part of those of the nature of the sheriff, and at other times he presided over the court »)( N. Y. Col. Doc., XIII. 196; Instructions for Schout of New Amsterdam, April 9, 1660, N. Y. Col. Doc., XIV. 463.))( voir aussi p.588 History of the State of New-York : 27 Juillet 1654)

“ Extract from a letter of the Directors to Stuyvesant ; the negotiations regarding a division of the Delaware territory have resulted in the surrender of Fort Casimir (New Castle) and the land south of it to the City of Amsterdam ; the new Colony is to be called New-Amstel and Jacob Alrichs is to be the City’s representative there.

19 Decbr. 1656 Colonial settlements on the Delaware river - New York Historical Records. p.133 :

…As we have heard, that there lives on the bouwery of the late Mr. Werckhoven †,

a certain party, being well versed in engineering and surveying, who consequently might be of service to the said new Colony as well in laying out the lots chosen for the dwelling- houses of the colonists as in other ways, therefore your Honors will, upon request, persuade the said engineer thereto and let him go thither, to make a good beginning and location there… »


En 1657, les plus hautes autorités administratives des colonies hollandaises validèrent l’entreprise de Jaques de fonder une ville à Long Island sur la Baie de la Rivière du Nord. En mémoire de sa ville natale en Hollande, également celle de son patron, Jaques a donné à ce village le nom de Nieuw Uijtrecht « Nouvelle Utrecht ». (cf. The Brooklyn Historical Society - Timeline of Brooklyn History.) Le relevé de 1660 de Manhattan, appelé habituellement le "Castellano" ou Plan "Castello" a été préparé par Jacques Cortelyou. (Ce plan a été redécouvert à la Villa di Castello, près de Florence en Italie in 1900. Il avait été joint à un atlas vendu à un membre de la famille Médicis). Les détails de ce relevé incluaient aussi un enregistrement de chaque résidence et sont encore une source de référence pour les généalogistes et les historiens. Voir http://www.teachout.org/vna/map.html pour une version coloriée, moderne et interactive.

Il a ainsi participé lui-même à la fondation de deux colonies : New Utrecht sur Long Island et, en 1660, il avait dessiné Bergen Square, site de la première ville aux limites actuelles de l’état du New Jersey à recevoir une charte municipale. History of the City of New York in the Seventeenth Century, Volume I, Schuyler Van Rensselear, New York, 1909

Jasper Dankaerts et Sluyter, des Labadistes, dans leur journal de voyage (Journal of a Voyage to New York in 1679-80 Journal of Jasper Danckaerts, 1679-1680, edited by Bartlett Burleigh James, Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1913) parlent de Jacques CORTELYOU en termes louables

Il est décédé après le 28 Février 1693 d’après Geraldus Beekman. (Cf. Documentary History of New York, ed. by O'Callaghan, vol II, pp. 414-415)et avant le 27 Juillet 1693 “when his widow gave a power of attorney: "Neeltje van Duyn, of New Utrecht, widow of Jacques Corteljau, deceased, to her sons, Jacques and Peter, to settle the estate of his late father.")(“Cf. Calendar of Historical Manuscripts..., part II, English Manuscripts,ed. by O'Callaghan, p. 235.”), probablement le Samedi 27 Juin 1693. (cf.http://genealogie.correlje.com/families/cortelyou/stamboom/#p1#p1 )
