Het Flevolands Archief  (English: Flevolands Archive) is the Online Flevoland Netherlands Genealogy Records. Flevoland is referred to the New Land because it’s a newer province consisting of southern and eastern Flevopolders and new land reclaimed from the water, and as such has fewer records for genealogy and family history. This was formerly the Nieuw Land Archief (New Lands Archive).


The Archive includes: “tens of thousands of photographs, documents, maps, drawings and objects that were found during the reclamation of the area in the ancient sea floor.”
