Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie

Central Bureau for Genealogy

The 'Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie' (Central Bureau for Genealogy - CBG) is the Dutch information and documentation centre for genealogy, family history and related sciences.

The CBG is the ideal starting point for most research into Dutch ancestors or Dutch migrants who settled in other countries in the world.

Check your family name in our online catalogue inside the frame at the top right hand corner and find corresponding entries into our collections. For catalogue information click catalogue. In our digital reading room you have access to an increasing number of digitized collections.

Here you find information about us and some advise how to start your genealogical research in the Netherlands. Meet other genealogists on the cbg forum.
