WieWasWie

WieWasWie gives you a quick way to find your Dutch forebears, both in the Netherlands and overseas. Your search is in the most accurate source for Dutch genealogy, the Civil Register. And it is not difficult!

It has existed in most of the country since 1811, but in the province of Limburg somewhat longer. Although WieWasWie contains a large proportion of this data, not all Dutch local authorities are yet included. Some provinces, such as Zuid-Holland, are still barely represented.

The database also contains some details of baptisms, marriages and deaths maintained by church parishes prior to 1811, as well as memoranda of inheritance from the 19th century.

WieWasWie contains 82 million names as of May 2013
