CD: Baptismal Records of the Dutch Reformed Churches in the City of Groningen, Netherlands


This new CD-ROM has seven volumes of essential records for those of Dutch ancestry, including five that have never been published before, spanning the years 1640-1715.

Each entry includes: the day, month, and year of baptism, the church in which it occurred, the child's given name, father's given name, father's patronymic, mother's name, and family address. This CD-ROM uses the powerful Adobe Acrobat reader (for Windows and Macintosh, provided free on the CD; the corresponding viewer for other operating systems, can be downloaded free of charge from The format preserves the look of the original page and allows the user to search the text for the names of people and places. When you run a search, the hits are highlighted on each page for easy identification.
