The data in this database are mainly gathered from the registers of the Lutheran church in Zaandam, Holland. To wit: baptisms 1642-1812 and marriages 1643-1820. Although most entries in these books have been incorporated in this database, some have been left out, mainly when individual people could not be matched with other people / families in the database. This applies to only a handful of entries. In some cases data from other sources have been added. This database is by no means limitative. Should you have any questions, please send me an email (click on the profile link to the left). Zaandam is a village immediately north of Amsterdam. The Zaandam Lutheran congregation was founded in the 17th century by lutherans from Scandinavia and Germany. Members of the Lutheran church lived in Zaandam itself, but also in neighbouring villages like Koog aan de Zaan, Zaandijk, Wormerveer, Krommenie, Westzaan and Oostzaan. Until 1812, Zaandam was divided in Oostzaandam (east of the river Zaan) and Westzaandam (west of the river). The lutheran church was and indeed still is in Westzaandam.
