For Geographical and Historical Information see: Noord-Holland

The capital city is Haarlem, see: Haarlem

A good web-site for this province is: Digitale bronbewerkingen Nederland en België Then, on the left side of the screen, find Noord-Holland and click on the Internet button located below the name of the province you are looking for.

When, in your research, you find an ancestor who came from Noord-Holland and you fill out the locality field, please do not translate the name of the province. In other words, don't write 'North Holland', but 'Noord-Holland' and make sure it is hyphenated as well. This is the correct way to enter the name of the province.
