My background
Ferry in use as a parking spot for bikes.

My hobby is house and occupant research of canal houses in Amsterdam. Of some canal houses much is known, but in general I collect relevant information in tax books, stored in the Amsterdam city archive, in the literature or on internet. Research provided details on a Amsterdam mayor Albert Burgh, my first lemma here. Further I listen to baroque operas. That interest has led to several lemma's in the Dutch Wikipedia, here I added to Ferdinando (III) de' Medici and Charles Jennens and Georg Frideric Handel.

I have been a guide in two museums and well informed with the painters Gillis d'Hondecoeter, Gabriel Metsu and Michael Coxcie. I have added to others like: Melchior de Hondecoeter, Jan Baptist Weenix, Jan Weenix, Johannes Vermeer, Jan van de Cappelle, Jürgen Ovens, and Balthasar Denner.

Various: Grigori Rasputin (where I made almost 1,600 changes in three years), Christina, Queen of Sweden, Francesco Algarotti, Albert Stopford, Hendrick Sorgh, Marktkirche Unser Lieben Frauen, Saskia van Uylenburg, Nicolas Steno, Jean-Baptiste Réveillon, Montgolfier brothers, The Conspiracy of Claudius Civilis, Caspar Stoll, Balthasar Bekker, Willem Anne Lestevenon and William Davidson of Curriehill.
