Wow! this is tremendous! i have been able to find a lot more relatives since these new collections have come on line. The best thing has been the hints which are automatically popping up whenever i add a new name to the tree - they just provide me even more relatives i did not even know about before...

thank you FamilySearch!!

Thanks for sharing more information.
Message for better Dutch spelling:
Burgelijke Stand should be Burgerlijke Stand, so add "r". It has to do with Dutch "burger" = citizen and "burg" = borough

I am having trouble finding them in any of the Dutch databases so I am thinking spelling variations, do you know the names of your grandparents, or any of the dates of birth?
