Death (Civil Register of Certificates) 1796/1811-1966

zgzwartelijn500 zgzwartelijn140blauw zgzwartelijn300

In this group, all public death certificates of 153 (former) municipalities of Zeeland till 1966 are included.

The Civil Registry in Zeeland began on September 22, 1796 in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. This part of Zealand was the year before annexed by the French Empire. Vlissingen (Flushing) starts in the Registry as of April 1, 1808 (1809 missing) and the rest of Zeeland with effect from 1 January 1811.

By indexing the death certificates, the former Rijksarchief in Zeeland began in 1995. For this we have cooperated with the Department of Zeeland, the Dutch Genealogical Society. The import program was developed by the Foundation for Historical Sample of the Dutch population (HSN). For the purposes of its demographic research they needed a general index to all death certificates, called AKON Project: General topper Death certificates Netherlands. Although also in other provinces the death certificates of the Registry have been entered into the computer Zeeland is the only province under the AKON-project.

Each death certificate contains a large number of information: names of the deceased, their sex, age, occupation and marital status. If stated the name of the partner (whether or not deceased) is mentioned. From the parents of the deceased listed is their name, age and occupation. If the appeal is indicated "Not recorded", then chances are that the parents are no longer alive. The comments section contains statements about earlier relationships, attached excerpts and other comments.

Please note that the death of a person may occur twice in the death registers of the civil registry. The death was registered in the municipality where the person died. If this is not the official residence, an excerpt (extract) of the certificate was registered in the place where the person officially lived.

Not included are the names of the declarants. In the case of children the father, is often the first declarant. Sometimes the certificate also states the address where the person died. The cause of death can not be retrieved through the death certificate.

The declaration of stillborn children is included in the register of death of the Registry. In Zeeland lifeless born got a name until 1840. On the island of Tholen they went with this until the end of the sixties of the nineteenth century. You can find all stillborn births by typing the word 'Levenloos' in the search field First Name.

Not always the death certificates are as extensive or accurate. Especially in the first decades of the Registry, the birthplace and the names of the parents are missing or incorrectly stated. You should also always be aware with the given age of the deceased. The declarants of the death often didn't know the exact year of birth and the specified age is often wrong. In time the data became more accurate.

Accessibility
