Dutch archive news April-May 2010

  • Genlias added birth and death records from the Netherlands Antilles (birth records from Aruba, death records from Saba), marriage records from Drenthe (Anloo), birth records from Flevoland (Urk), and death records from Noord-Brabant (a major update).

Digitized newspaper

  • The National Library of the Netherlands is digitizing Dutch newspapers from 1618 to the late 20th century (as I announced before). The first batch of one million pages is available now, the other seven million pages will be added over the next 18 months. The newspapers are in Dutch, of course, and so is the search page.
  • The National Library, together with the National Archive of Suriname, will digitize newspapers from Suriname from 1774-1995. This includes papers from the collections of the National Archive of Suriname and papers from the collections of the National Library of the Netherlands.
  • More newspapers: Tresoar announced several digitized regional newspapers from the northern part of the country (Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe) are now available on a new website. In the future they will add more (northern) newspapers.
  • The Zeeland archive has a new website. There is no English interface, only an English summary.
  • The Overijssel archive opened a flickr account. Currently there is only an album about football (soccer) in Zwolle, hopefully other albums will follow soon.
  • The Utrecht archive opened a new website section about Utrecht in WWII, but only in Dutch.
  • The Dutch National Archive, which is also the provincial archive of Zuid-Holland, has copies of the church books of the province Zuid-Holland (the originals are scattered throughout the province). Over the next few months these copies will be digitized and from November they should be available on the website of the National Archive. In the meantime these copies cannot be consulted by archive visitors. (link)

My ancestor was an Englishman, John Hilton Jackson, born in Holland who went out to Surinam to manage a coffee planation in 1840s. He married (and died) there after becoming a District Commissioner in Paramaribo. I cannot find him on Genlias, where are these records?

If he's born in Holland after 1811 there should be a birth record somewhere. It will end up in Genlias (or its successor, http://wiewaswie.nl/) eventually. Do you know when/where he was born?

Surinam related records are either in Surinam, or in the Dutch national archives. Some of them are online, at http://www.gahetna.nl/. In a database of freed slaves I found a Magdalena Maatje Hilton, former owner E. van Emden, surety J.H. Jackson - is this surety your ancestor?
