The closure of the website Zoekakten.be has deprived a lot of genealogists from an easy and well-maintained source to search the unindexed digitalized images of Dutch and Belgian Civil and Parish registers.

That doesn't mean that the underlying access has disappeared.

To find images in the unindexed collections of digitalized images Belgian Civil and Parish registers stored in Familysearch you can try genealogiewerkbalk (in dutch) or navigate through the FamilySearch catalog for the Netherlands or Belgium

The quickest way to get to those documents is :

  • Log in to FamilySearch
  • go to the main search page, locate the section "Find a Collection" and click the "Browse all the collections" link.
Belgium : Family Search main search page
  • At the Historical collections page, type "belgium" in the filter field
Belgium : Family Search Belgian Collections
  • This is most of the information that was in Zoekakten.be, clicking a collection will open a search window, don't enter any info here but select and click the link "Browse through xnumberx images" at the bottom of the screen.
