Everything in AEZEL.EU starts with authentic and traceable data.
Under ‘Sources’ all possible authentic materials can be found. Very often these are scans of the records held in public archives within Limburg, or files from societies or private collections. Not only on paper, but also audio- and video files are valid sources, Furthermore sources from the Belgian and German border towns can be found. These are scans of the copies made of the original documents kept in the countries of origin, but which have been stored for many years in the Sittard-Geleen Archive De Domijnen.
By selecting the Netherlands as ‘country’ you can also search the former Cadastral Local Government, or City Councils - or look at the current Municipaltiy under “Municipality’. If you are not sure under which name former towns or villages can be found, the a placename register for the smaller villages or hamlets could be helpful. Although it may be a little outdated since the last mergers of governing bodies it should still be able to provide most answers. By typing in ‘place’ ; Amstenrade, for example and by entering ‘overlijden’ (death) at ‘description’, all the registers of deaths of the village Amstenrade can be viewed, namely those of the General Register Office (Burgerlijke Stand) and parish.
If you only search via "Sittard" and "1837", you will find all registers in that year, including the cadastral register.
