This Collection will include records from 1562 to 1822. These parish register transcripts include various towns in Limburg Province, Netherlands.  
  
Most of the transcripts are arranged in alphabetical order and have been transcribed from&nbsp;parish registers. The alphabetizing rules used for names such as 'van BEUGEN' will be listed under B for Beugen. The transcript records start with a title page describing the place, church name, type of record, and dates that follows, and then comes the lists of names in alphabetical order. Some names may not have been transcribed exactly as in the original, so you may want to check the originals. The information is typewritten in the form of a spreadsheet.

Title in the Language of the Records

Nederland, Limburg Parish Register Afschriften

Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1562 to 1822. These parish register transcripts include various towns in Limburg Province, Netherlands.

Most of the transcripts are arranged in alphabetical order and have been transcribed from parish registers. Some names may not have been transcribed exactly as in the original, so you may want to check the originals. The information is typewritten in the form of a spreadsheet.

The transcript records start with a title page describing the place, church name, type of record, and dates of the following records. The names are then listed in alphabetical order. The alphabetizing rules used mean that names such as 'van BEUGEN' will be listed under B for 'Beugen.'

Some records were destroyed in wars and fires. As a result, government officials began collecting copies of some of the church records in the 1700s. Copies or duplicates of the parish records were used as Civil Registers. Duplicate records were maintained by the parish priests prior to 1796. An abstract or transcription of most of these duplicates is housed in state archives. Some of these registers were also collected at the Diocesan Archive. In 1929, the government ordered that all pre-1811 records be sent to the state archives and most parishes complied with this new rule. Those registers deposited at the regional and municipal archives have been microfilmed and are available at the Family History Library for research.

The parish register transcripts in the Netherlands are an excellent source for accurate information on names as well as dates and places of birth, marriages, and deaths. After 1811, it is also recommended to research the civil registration to verify and complement information. Between 1588 and 1795, the Dutch Reform Church was the state church, so it is also recommended to research those registers for those years.

For more information about the history, content, and use of these records see the wiki article Netherlands Church Records.

Use the transcripts, where available, to supplement the original parish registers, especially when originals are missing or illegible. Be aware that transcripts often differ slightly from the originals.

For a list of records by localities and dates currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.
