Dutch BMD records access via Ancestry

Ancestry ( has provided third party access to three new vital records databases for the Netherlands, which may be of interest if you have connections over the English Channel.

Web: Leiden, Netherlands, Birth Index, 1670-1913

Web: Leiden, Netherlands, Marriage Index, 1575-1934

Web: Leiden, Netherlands, Death Index, 1811-1960

The records are in Dutch - obviously! - and the source is the Regional Archief Leiden. Once you have found a record of interest you will be redirected to the original website - if you use Google Chrome, I think the site should be automatically translated into English.


Time to find your inner Irish...! All the best online Irish genealogy resources can be found through my book Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet - in print and ebook formats. "Very useful, makes me wish I was Irish!" - Saint Patrick, patron saint.
