Digitale Stamboom

The website

Last year we looked at the Digitale Stamboom (Digital Family Tree) of Rotterdam. Amersfoort, Leiden, Haarlem, Delft and Eindhoven have a similar Digitale Stamboom. The archives using the Digitale Stamboom system now offer a single search interface for their databases: Digitale Stamboom.

What do they have?

An index to BMD records and church books from the regions Amersfoort, Haarlem, Leiden, Delft, Eindhoven and Rotterdam.

Is there an English interface?

Yes: Click on English at the top right.

How do I use it?

The search interface is straightforward. Fill in some of the fields (as usual, watch out for the infix part of names like De Kooning), and press the search button at the bottom. Click on a name in the search result list for details.

The example above shows the details of the baptism of Sara van den Berg, on 18 May 1750 in Rotterdam. Watch out for the date format: 18-5-1750, and not 5-18-1750!

Click on Help at the top for more search tips.

How much does it cost?

Using the index is free. There are, of course, charges for ordering copies.

Future plans

None that I know of. In the list of participating archives, The Hague is listed. Does that mean that we can in the future also search in records from The Hague?


A useful site, as you can search some of the main cities that do not participate in Genlias (Rotterdam, Leiden and Delft). If you can't find your ancestors in Genlias, and you don't know where they lived, try the Digitale Stamboom.

Want to be notified of new records in the Digitale Stamboom?

Indeed. I use both the Digitale Stamboom Monitor and the Genlias Monitor myself, and I wrote about them last year in my newsletter. Thanks for reminding us, Bob. And thanks for offering us the monitors;-)

This is a few years late, but just letting you know genlias has moved to wiewaswie.nl. On top of that, The Hague / Den Haag has been added to the Digitale Stamboom website, AND you can look through all the archives manually. It's pretty cool. Amsterdam has archives online too but you have to pay if you want to see any scans :(
