Updated database

I’ve just updated the genealogical database. It now includes about 42,500 people and their families. This includes almost 3,200 emigrants from the eastern part of the Achterhoek who emigrated to the United States in the nineteenth century. This is just the tip of the iceberg and is by no means complete. I did enter all of the Winterswijk emigrants I could find in the period 1840-1880, often with their ancestors as well.

Besides adding more people, I’ve also included more information about the persons who were already in the database. I have now imported my own ‘information’ fields as well, which may include information about witnesses, land ownerships or other details. For many families, I have includes pages and pages of transcribed records. All of this additional information is in Dutch but since this database is being used by Dutch people as well I thought to include it anyway since it contains so much additional details.
