Dutch term – Notulen

Notulen are minutes. They can be found in the records created by many different types of people and organizations, such as church councils or the municipal government. They can contain a variety of information.

Archival descriptions in finding aids often don’t index the minutes but simply label the boxes as notulen and their period. You will have to view the original records to learn what their contents are.
