Note to Patrons: Many of the records in the Civil Registrations have files connected to the wrong records. This link: Wegwijzer in de wondere wereld van FamilySearch also known as Genver, contains a list of all the problems that have been reported thus far and the correct location of the desired records. This site is being updated as needed. The information is in Dutch.
Question #1: Why do some record sets include records of a type other than that described in the set title; i.e., births, deaths, marriages, and divorces may be mixed together?
Answer #1: The original records are of mixed type. Birth, marriage and death records are in one book, and in some cases, more than one record type is found on the same page. Not much can be done to resolve that, so the collection was organized with three sets of the same images in numerical order. One set for births, one for deaths and one for marriages. The resulting combination of record sets usually appear alphabetically by type, e.g., Geboorten records appear first, followed by Huwelijken, Overlijden, etc.
Question #2: Misplaced records; where can they be found?
Answer #2: See answers below. If records are available on film; see Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions.
- Wijhe > Huwelijksbijlagen. Each of the marriage supplements starting with 1927 are off by one year hence:
- Huwelijksbijlagen 1926—contains the first 20 marriage supplements for 1926
- Huwelijksbijlagen 1927—contains marriage supplements for #21 to the end of 1926 after ignoring the first two images.
- Huwelijksbijlagen 1928-- contains marriage supplements for 1927
