This Collection will include records from 1820 to 1930.
  
== Record Description  ==
+
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, birth, death, 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.
  
This Collection will include records from 1820 to 1930.<br>
+
The 1850 register entries were based on information gathered from the census taken November 19, 1849. From 1850 to 1920, the records were kept in bound registers that were sorted by addresses. Around 1920, the bound registers were phased out and replaced by a loose-leaf system known as family cards (gezinskaarten). These cards were organized by family name and were used until 1940 when a new system came into effect. As individuals died, their cards or printouts were sent to the Central Offices for Statistics.  
  
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.

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.

What is in the Collection?

This Collection will include records from 1820 to 1930.

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, birth, death, 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. From 1850 to 1920, the records were kept in bound registers that were sorted by addresses. Around 1920, the bound registers were phased out and replaced by a loose-leaf system known as family cards (gezinskaarten). These cards were organized by family name and were used until 1940 when a new system came into effect. As individuals died, their cards or printouts were sent to the Central Offices for Statistics.

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. Population registers are an important source of genealogical information. They may contain complete families, addresses, dates, occupations, and other important remarks listed by the magistrates. To find a family in this collection, it is usually necessary to know the place where the family lived and the family surname.
