Dutch archive news, August 2010
August means summer, and summer means vacation season: Many archive visitors and archive staff were on vacation. The result was limited opening hours, fewer visitors, and hardly any news.
- New in genlias: Marriage records from Curaçao and death records from Flevoland (Noordoostpolder, Urk, Zuidelijke IJsselmeerpolders) and Noord-Holland (Anna Paulowna, Beemster, Oostzaandam, Sijbekarspel, Spanbroek, Westzaandam, Zaandam).
- Three archives used the quiet summer months to launch a page on facebook: the provincial archives BHIC (Noord-Brabant) and Tresoar (Friesland), and the regional archive Markiezenhof (Bergen op Zoom). Markiezenhof is also new on Twitter (@hetmarkiezenhof). See the complete list of Dutch archives on facebook and twitter.
