    1. John,

      We aren’t professional genealogists, but Netherlands has a lot of free, open access records. If you’re having trouble searching these official archives, I would suggest you try OpenArchives and see if you have more luck there or MyHeritage (a fee site) has these records and has many family trees where you might find what you’re looking for.

      Best with your research,
