About the collection
The Nationaal Archief holds the largest collection of archives in the Netherlands. The collection consists of important government documents, as well as provincial and private archives. The Nationaal Archief collection is constantly changing. New archives are added every day, and documents are regularly removed from the archive and transferred to other archives, such as regional archives. You can find information on the Nationaal Archief collection and details of recent additions and removals on these pages (in Dutch).
