This page lists the websites of the various provincial, regional and city archives in the Netherlands, as well as other sites catering for specific regions, provinces and cities.

Major Websites[edit | edit source]

These are the websites of the regional and provincial archives for each region. With the advent of subscription fees for WieWasWie from January 2016, these sites have become important for doing free genealogy research in the Netherlands. These sites generally contain indexes to civil registration (post 1811), church records(pre-1811), and sometimes population registers(post 1850), Notarial records and other records. Note that while in many cases the content of these sites is the same as WieWasWie and OpenArch, in many cases these sites contain information not in WieWasWie/OpenArch and vice-versa.
