For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records.

This is an index of some births or baptisms throughout the Netherlands. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region. Some of this information is also found in the International Genealogical Index (IGI).

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.

+
=== Record Reliability  ===
