Since I started using GRAMPS I started recording source information in its database. Now also a lot of source scans have become online (FamilySearch, Nationaal Archief, Delft archives) I started to review all data. This already resulted in some new branches. At the moment I completed the family names which begin with letters A and B.

7 February 2011

I removed my genealogical data from and link to GeneaNet. Nowadays you see these so called FREE sites become more and more commercial, while the only reason of their existence is that people are willing to share their data without asking for any contribution. GeneaNet is more and more forcing people to become so called PRIVILIGED - they mean PAYING - member to be able to access data of others. Under this condition I'm no longer prepared to share my data under the header GeneaNet. My data will always be available to EVERYONE for FREE and I will share these with organizations only if no money is charged for any access to all of the data being available.
