Getting started with The Netherlands Antilles research

The Nederlandse Antillen (The Netherlands Antilles) was a former autonomous part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of the West Indies islands of Curaçao, Bonaire, and formerly Aruba—all off the north coast of Venezuela in the Caribbean Sea—and Saba, Sint Eustatius and Sint Maarten (part French)—east of the US Virgin Islands.

As of October 2010, the country no longer exists. For more historical and geographical information see:
