Online genealogy in Friesland
- The main resource for genealogy in Friesland is Tresoar, the website of the Frisian Historical and Literary Centre. I reviewed this website last year.
- The new website AlleFriezen (All Frisians) aims to show "information from public records of the Registry Offices (since 1811) [and] to enable the viewing of the original certificates, belonging to that information". I.o.w., they will eventually have scans of all BMD acts of the civil register.
- The image database Fries Fotoarchief (Frisian photo archive), maintained by Tresoar, has now 54,219 images. Unfortunately, it is only available in Dutch and Frisian. There are local image databases for Leeuwarden and other towns.
- Tresoar is present on Flickr and YouTube. The Leeuwarden city archive Historisch Centrum Leeuwarden is present on YouTube.
- For indexes of cemeteries and photos of tombstones visit Graftombe (Tomb) or Online Begraafplaatsen (Online Cemeteries).
- Discuss your Friesland roots at the Yahoo mailing list Friesland-genealogy or the Ancestry message board Friesland.
