Dutch Research

Want to uncover more about your families history? Let Me Help!


Although it can be difficult..it is not impossible to do research on your Dutch ancestors. There is a great site – https://www.wiewaswie.nl where you can do a free name search. It can be overwhelming so try to narrow it down to an area or at least a Province.  MH_DUTCHmap
