gahetNA in the National Archives


To search on the homepage of VOC Sea-voyagers one can use the family name of the person concerned. The use of special symbols such as stars and question marks is not required. Prefixes such as "de" are unnecessary.

Example 1: A search for a person named Lagerwei. It is not known if the person has been recorded as "Lagerwei" or "Lagerwij". One types the name "Lagerw" and clicks upon "Quick search".

Example 2: A search for a person named "van der Horst". As prefixes are not required enter only "Horst". A search in progress not only checks the name-data of sea-voyagers but also the data concerning beneficiaries of month certificates.
