Research has now gotten a lot easier for English speakers who are searching for their Dutch ancestors. The fabulous site, Wiewaswie, now has an English version. If you go to the main site, at the top of the page, there is a spot where you click “English” to translate the site or you can go directly to the English version by entering this URL: https://www.wiewaswie.nl/en/home/. No longer do you need a dictionary to work in Wiewaswie.
Also, a new video has been produced by FamilySearch to help beginners learn to use the site. It is called “Using the Dutch Website Whowaswho” and can be found on the FamilySearch Learning Center video courses under Netherlands.
These tools are a great help for finding your Dutch ancestors.
