The population register was introduced in 1850 to keep track of families as they moved from one residence to another, although some localities began recording moves as early as 1820. It contained much the same information as the earlier censuses but added changes of address; occupations; births, deaths, and marriage dates; and immigration information. With all the changes, pages could get messy, so it was necessary to close some of the registers and start new ones. The 1850 register entries were based on information gathered from the census taken November 19, 1849. Early registers were sorted by address. Later registers were sorted by family name. Around 1920, the bound registers were phased out and replaced by a loose-leaf system known as family cards (gezinskaarten), which was used until 1940 when a new system came into effect.

FamilySearch Record Search This article describes a collection of historical records available at FamilySearch.org.

Contents

Title in the Language of the Record

Nederland, Noord-Brabant Provincie bevolkingsregisters

Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1820 to 1930.

The records from 1850 to 1920 were kept in bound registers that were sorted by addresses. Later registers were sorted by family names. From 1920 to 1940, the registration was done on family cards. As individuals died, their cards or printouts were sent to the Central Offices for Statistics.

The population register was introduced in 1850 to keep track of families as they moved from one residence to another, although some localities began recording moves as early as 1820. It contained much the same information as the earlier censuses but added changes of address; occupations; births, deaths, and marriage dates; and immigration information. With all the changes, pages could get messy, so it was necessary to close some of the registers and start new ones. The 1850 register entries were based on information gathered from the census taken November 19, 1849. Early registers were sorted by address. Later registers were sorted by family name. Around 1920, the bound registers were phased out and replaced by a loose-leaf system known as family cards (gezinskaarten), which was used until 1940 when a new system came into effect. 

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

Local magistrates needed a better system to keep track of inhabitants as they moved from place to place.

Because of all the copying and changing, the population registers contain a lot of errors; however, they do contain a lot of information not easily found elsewhere. Information found in these registers should always be checked against vital or church records
