Dutch archive news roundup December 2008

The month is not finished yet, but I don't expect anything to happen between Christmas and New Year. If there is news, I will add it to the January news roundup.

  • Genlias added birth, marriage and death acts from the province Zuid-Holland.
  • The National Archive opened a new website, Afscheid van Indië (Farewell to the Indies), with resources from the time of decolonization of the Dutch Indies. The National Archive also added a Flickr photo set on the same topic.
  • The provincial archive of Noord-Brabant, Brabants Historisch Informatie Centrum, started publishing photos from their collection on Flickr.
  • The city archive of The Hague started digitizing the Haagse Courant, the largest newspaper of The Hague. Digitized newspapers will be available in libraries and the archive in The Hague only, unfortunately there are no plans (yet?) to publish them on the internet or make them available outside The Hague.

Nice round-up.

One correction: Afscheid van Indie translates to 'Farewell to the Indies'. This refers to the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia, not India.

Bedankt voor je correctie, Yvette.

You're right, I'll change it now. Thanks for pointing that out.
