Searching for ancestors from Amsterdam made easy
Recently over 18 million historical persons listings where added to Open Archives. The data is made available by the City Archive of Amsterdam and was derived from among others: baptism / marriage / burial registers, population registers, notarial deed, police registers, militia registers and patient registers.
The records where already made available via one of many indexes you had to search seperate on the Dutch-only website of the City Archive of Amsterdam. Open Archives makes searching multiple indexes a thing of the past, all records can be searched via one query.
Open Archives also provides, where relevant, extra information about the weather, historical maps, links to other records about the same person(s) in the same or other archives. And always nice: a big part of the records are linked to scans of the records.
