Overview

Genlias is the premier site for Dutch records. The information from this site was taken directly from the Netherlands Civil Register. Some church records are also included. This site contains almost 10.5 million records with over 44 million names. The index is not complete; records are continuously being added. Most notably missing are records from Amsterdam, 's-Gravenhage (The Hague)(Genlias does have marriage records for The Hague from 1811-1842), Rotterdam, Leiden, Delft, etc.

If you want to see what is currently included in Genlias, go to the web-site http://www.genlias.nl/ and click on "What is in Genlias". Scroll down till you find "Current database status" and click on the orange(!) link. Choose the province and then the town you are looking for. If the town is not there, no records are as yet available on this site. If there are records, it will tell you which time period and what type of records are covered.

There are also records included from some of the Dutch colonies.
