Bergen op Zoom

The Belgian family

In Belgium the majority of van Dort's today can be found in Gent. Gent is not far from Bergen op Zoom. People there origin from the Beemster family and moved to Belgium in the last 100 years. 

Yet in the 17th century Seger van Dort translated "Den methamorphosis: ofte, Herscheppinge" by Ovidius Naso. It was published in Antwerpen in 1650. This book is part of the collection of the city library of Antwerpen. So there were more van Dorts in Belgium before, but little is known yet.
