Welcome to the NetherlandsGenWeb Project homepage. This site is part of the WorldGenWeb Project and is the local resource page for research in Liechtenstein.

If you need assistance with this website, please contact me. Please do not send me your queries.

The NetherlandsGenWeb Project is in need of volunteers to host query boards, provide look-up resources, transcribe data, help with archival research and more. If you might be interested in volunteering please contact me.

The Netherlands is often called Holland. This is technically incorrect, as North and South Holland in the western Netherlands are only two of the country's twelve provinces.

We've tried to gather some of the best resources for research in The Netherlands. If you know of some quality resources that we should link to please let us know.

 

The Netherlands is the European part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, which consists of the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles, and Aruba.
