Dutch Roots template questions

+12 votes
In the Dutch Roots template there is an option to fill in regio. I know it isn't used yet, but what kind of data should be put in here?

Are we talking about stuff like Eemland, Utrechtse Heuvelrug, 't Gooi, etc. or larger regions like Randstad or North-East Netherlands?

Also, my nephew was born in a hospital in Hilversum, but apart from those first few hours he has always lived in Baarn. Should I use his place of birth Hilversum in the template, making him a member of the category Nederlanders uit Noord-Holland (which doesn't feel right), or use Baarn which puts him in the category Nederlanders uit Utrecht?

For the place of birth of your nephew I would go for the city 9f the birthcertificate. (Waar aangifte is gedaan)

{{Dutch Roots

There are no rules as to what values would be valid for this argument. The order of the arguments suggests a geographical hierarchy, which would mean a "regio" (region) should not span "provincies" (provinces).

In the case of your nephew I would go for Baarn as "gemeente", and I would explain the choice in the bio.
