The Dutch CarPark title language sources warehouse genealogy history archives sitemap

intro Last updated: december 5 , 2009

links checked at this page december 5, 2009 so in the meanwhile many of them most probably will not work, open

Due to my emigration from the Netherlands to Brazil and my new work here, I'm having considerably less time to work on my CarPark. Yet I would prefer to keep the Park online. I hope you will understand that there will be no maintenance of the Park right now. The site just will stay online because it`s still being used.

This CarPark site will provide links of mainly Dutch and Belgian genealogical, cultural, historical, linguistical and topographical websites. Texts and information about the Netherlands and Belgium that might be relevant to non-Dutch speaking genealogists, will be available here too. Almost all links to the Dutch and Belgian pages that I have listed are for websites which are -at least partly- written in English.
For large, printable, historical maps and examples of old Dutch handwriting, you can visit the Warehouse site. You can find the link in the menu-bar above almost all pages in the CarPark.

Find all about the Netherlands -and more- in





Persons, researchers who want professional help for historical and/or genealogical research in the Netherlands, basic or extensive look-ups in (specialized)  libraries or archives should definitely visit the  'Dutch Archives historical research bureau'. This excellent, professional site is in Dutch and English. The leader of this bureau -situated in Leiden- is highly qualified: visit the site to get an idea!
Click here if you want to know all about real Dutch food, customs,national character, folktales and legends ! Another site which I can recommend to stay in touch with Dutch culture, genealogy and all kinds of Dutch information is the Dutch Heritage site.
For a cheap yet comfortable way to stay a few days in the Netherlands please visit the Bed & Breakfast section on this page.
If you want to know a bit more about the pronunciation of Dutch vowels, consonants, diftongues and triphtongues, go to the the "Uitspraak"-page ('uitspraak' = pronunciation) on this site.

To find detailled information about any country of your choice, please visit the Country Studies site of the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress.

Last bnl: to be kept informed about Dutch news and historical, social and cultural info I can recommend Radio Netherlands Worldbroadcast.

The 10 Belgian provinces and the
Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

10 belgian provinces


Mind the difference between the Belgian province of Luxembourg and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Also note that both Belgium and the Netherlands have provinces with identical names: Limburg and Brabant (although in the Netherlands the province of Brabant is called Noord-Brabant officially). To complicate things even further: there has been a 'Grafschaft Limburg' (County of Limburg) in Germany (not to be confused with the town of Limburg, NE of Frankfurt at the Mainz)!

I'm not a confirmed pacifist (I now and then would like to kick somebody's ass...) but I'm absolutely not supporting the majority of wars which are fought out all over the world for often so dubious reasons or motives. Personally I prefer to share my relatively wealth (I lived most part of my life in the rich western world you know) with those who don't have the means and possibilities I can literally swim in).
If just a small percentage of my visitors would like to fight the war against terrorism and all other ongoing wars or those to come just a little bit different, by supporting our less fortunate brothers and sisters or those brave man and women who dedicate their life to this purpose, I would be more than happy. Below I have gathered some organizations you might want to support.
It's not a sin to be rich, but it is stupid and cruel not to share it with those who are suffering.
And, if you would like to share your experiences with me: feel free to do so!
NB: SUPPORT WHILE YOU READ! A very comfortable way to support projects in Africa is by reading the socially engaged detective novels of the Swedish author Henning Mankell. His books are translated into 22 languages so he's pretty financially independent. Large part of his income is donated to projects in Africa.
