Dutch archive news June 2009

  • Several archives announced limited opening hours during the summer.
  • The Royal Dutch Library completed its Short-Title Catalogue (STCN), a complete biography of Dutch books printed between 1540 and 1800. The project took 15 years to complete. You can consult the database here.
  • Genlias added birth records from Groningen.
  • The Flevoland archive announced a new exhibition and website: Vergane schepen (Lost ships). The area that is now the province Flevoland was once the Zuiderzee, a small inland sea. 435 shipwrecks were found during the creation of the polders in the Zuiderzee. The website Vergane schepen shows a selection on a map, with images of and information about the wreck (in Dutch).
