Record types found on the films are births, marriages, deaths, 10 year indexes, marriage intentions, marriage proclamations, and marriage supplements. The events are recorded either totally by hand or in partially preprinted books where the information is then entered by hand.  
+
This collection contains records from 1811 to 1950.<br>
  
The collection was assembled from existing records, usually books or ledgers. Sometimes the original record book contained one type of entry, such as births. Sometimes, the book contained multiple record types, such as births, deaths, and marriages. Therefore, as you search the records, you will find a mixture of record types even though the heading mentions only one type of record initially. The heading may change as you search the specific collection to reflect the variety of records it contains. Thus, searching in marriages may lead to both marriage and divorce records. The same will be true when searching divorces.

Civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths for the province of Gelderland. Indexes, marriage intentions, marriage proclamations, marriage supplements, and divorces are also included. Time period of the records varies by locality and record type.  
  
The French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte introduced civil registration to the Netherlands at the time of the French occupation in the late 1700s, first in the southern part of the country and later in the rest of the country. Since March of 1811,&nbsp;the local civil authorities in Gelderland began recording births, marriages, and deaths using a standard format. Two copies of the records were created; one stayed in the local registration district, the second was sent annually to the district court. The district court created “ten-year” indexes and eventually deposited the records and ten-year indexes in the provincial archives.&nbsp;

The civil registration serves to officially record the events of births, marriages, and deaths in a person’s life. These records also&nbsp;served&nbsp;for statistical purposes, and in the earlier years, for military drafting.  
+
For information about the history, content, and use of these records see the wiki article [[Netherlands Civil Registration (FamilySearch Historical Records)]].  
  
The civil registration is the most accurate source for records search after March 1811 in Gelderland. For events prior to March 1811, it&nbsp;is best to search church records.

Dutch civil registration records are an excellent source for accurate information on names, places, and dates of events such as births, marriages, and deaths. By doing research in the civil registration records, a person can compile several family groups.
+
 
+
When looking for a birth record, search by the given name of the child, the mother’s maiden name, and that of the father. Children are never labeled as 'illegitimate', but the mother is noted as being 'unmarried'. If the father and mother of the child later married, it will be mentioned in the margin of the birth certificate as well and that the child is 'recognized' as theirs. The child's last name will now have been changed to the father's last name as well, so the child is born with the mother's last name, but will later in life go with the father's last name. If you believe a marriage took place but cannot find a record of the marriage, search records of intent to marry. Take note of the marriage entry number; you will need this to locate the marriage supplements, which are the documents filed by the bride and groom in support of their application to be married. Civil death records often exist for individuals whom there are no birth or marriage records for. Married women are recorded under their maiden surname.
