Wow, this is great information!
Jan, thank you for the fantastic first bunch of steps. Even with my limited experience at this, the pieces you provided allowed me to go back even further fairly quickly.
Luke, also thanks! I'm discovering I had a much deeper ancestry in the Netherlands than I imagined.
I confess, I'm finding my lack of language skills to be a bit of a hindrance. I was looking up words as I event in order to perform a few searches on genlas . Are there ways of getting scans or digitized copies of actual documents, or is my best hope to just expect transcribed database information?
I also know that my grandmother travelled to meet and marry my grandfather in order1947, according to a passenger manifest I have. Janna Roerink travelled from Amsterdam to New York . I also have a physical visitor permit from Amsterdam1959 when her mother visited my grandparents on an RCAF base in Germany. She had remarried at this time.
Is there any record of registered addresses that can be searched?
