Known Issues

NOTE: Many of the records in the Civil Registrations have files connected to the wrong records. This link: Wegwijzer in de wondere wereld van FamilySearch also known as Genver, contains a list of all the problems that have been reported thus far and the correct location of the desired records. This site is being updated as needed. The information is in Dutch.

NOTE: Most missing records are available on microfilm. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on ordering microfilm as well as finding a local FamilySearch Center where you can view the films.

Question #1: Why do some browse points include records of a type other than that indicated. For example, births, deaths, marriages, and divorces may be mixed together?
Answer #1: The original records are of mixed types. Birth, marriage and death records are in one book, and in some cases, more than one record type is found on the same page. Not much can be done to resolve that, so the collection was organized with three sets of the same images in numerical order. One set for births, one for deaths and one for marriages. The resulting combination of record sets usually appear alphabetically by type, e.g., Geboorten records appear first, followed by Huwelijken, Overlijden, etc.

Question #2: The Event Type and Year Range (browse point) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. Is there a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer #2: The following list of known browse point discrepancies describes the event type or year range that actually exist in this collection:

  • Abbenbroek > Overlijden (deaths) 1933-1942 is at the link for Alblasserdam > Overlijden (deaths) 1933-1942, Images 2-60.
  • Alblasserdam > Overlijden (deaths) 1933-1942 is at the correct link, and records start with Image #61. Images #2-60 are for Abbenbroek.
  • Hellevoetsluis > Overlijden 1894-1902 in link for Hekendorp > Overlijden 1893-1902 beginning with image 101.
  • Hekelingen > Overlijden (deaths) 1893-1902 is at the link for Heinenoord > Overlijden (deaths) 1893-1902, Image #120-282.
  • Strijen > Overlijden (deaths) 1913-1932:
Records begin with 1923, followed by 1924.
1913-1932 records follow those for 1924 in sequence, beginning at Image 53.
  • Vrijenban>Geboorten, Huwelijken and Overlijden 1812-1817.
Vrijenban was incorporated into Delft as of 1 Jan 1812 and separated again 1 Apr 1817. History of the town between 1812-1921 can be found at Genver website. Search in Delft for these records.

  • Zeeland Province:  Middelburg

Question #5: The images for Breille > Geboorten (Births) 1847-1860 are too light to read. Are the records available on film?
Answer #5: The records found on Film 236657 appear to be more readable.

Question #6: I am trying to view some images in several localities that were previously available. Where can I find these sequestered records?
Answer #6: Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images on our website are granted by the record custodians. Netherlands government privacy rules prohibit viewing the following records: all birth images must be 100 years or older; all marriage images must be 75 years or older, and all death images must be 50 years or older. If any record on a digital folder contains birth records from the last 100 years, for example, the entire digital folder is restricted. The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collections.
