Walter Noteboom’s Netherlands Birth Registration

I came across a website with images of vital records in the Netherlands.  Excitingly, it contained the records for several members of the Noteboom family, including my 3rd great grandfather, Walter.  Below is a rough translation I was able to do using Google Translate.  Some of the handwritten words, particularly the names may not be exactly right.  This is an exciting find because it confirms his parents’ names, and his father’s occupation.  I had seen an unsourced notation that his father was a fabric dyer (confirmed!), who died in 1850 of indigo poisoning (unconfirmed).
