Genealogy in the Netherlands

Wat Was Waar
a wonderful place name data base with maps

and my thamks to
Dutch Genealogy - Top 10 Dutch genealogy websites: "De Woonomgeving means ‘the living environment’. It shows the digitized 1832 plot maps including the lists of owners. You can zoom in on the map to view the maps (MP for the detailed plan or VP for the overview plan). Scans from the information about the owners of the plots are available as well. These are called OATs (Oorspronkelijke Aanwijzende Tafels, original referring tables)."

Genlias - Research your Dutch genealogy: "Have you always wanted to know from whom you are descended? Genlias gives you a quick way to find your Dutch forebears from as far back as 1780, both in the Netherlands and overseas. Your search is in the most accurate source for Dutch genealogy,
the Civil Register. And it is not difficult!"

For almost 200 years the Dutch authorities have been recording births, marriages and deaths in the Civil Register. Genlias provides you with information from these official records.

Genlias - Statistics: "Genlias is growing! Volunteers throughout the country are entering new records all the time. This page has information about the number of records in Genlias and the number of times these records are searched." over 45 millon now
