Online cemeteries – Dutch alternatives to Find a Grave – Tombstone Tuesdays October 22, 2019

In looking for this week’s Tombstone Tuesdays post, I came across this article – Online cemeteries – Dutch alternatives to Find a Grave: Below is a partial list from the above link; other links are for war graves and several cemeteries:

Not many cemeteries in the Netherlands can be found on international websites like Find a Grave or Billion Graves. There is no Dutch equivalent for these sites, but there are several websites that provide photos of graves.

General grave websites

  • Online begraafplaatsen (online cemeteries). Over 500,000 graves from around the Netherlands. To search for a person, fill in the Achternaam (last name) and Voornaam (first name) and press Zoek (Search). No results? Try just searching for the last name as the first name may be incomplete on the grave.
  • Graftombe (grave tomb). Select the English version in the top right corner and then click Search. This will give you a list of results including the IDs of the photo. The actual photos can be requested by registered users. Registration is free.
