Quick Tip – Repeat Searches Periodically

If you search a database and don’t find the record you’re looking for, try again later. Many databases get periodic updates or corrections, so a record that cannot be found today may be added tomorrow.

For example, the people database at Archieven.nl often has new records as a result of indexing projects or because new archives decide to host their digital records there.
