Tips

Enter Netherlands place names into PAF, New FamilySearch or any other program as:

City (Plaats), Municipality (Gemeente), Province (Provincie), Nederland. New FamilySearch has a 'standardized' version for the localities, however, they are often not correct, so just put in the proper locality and ignore the warning that the standardized version was not used. Please do not translate the localities into English.
