Nationaal Archief Name Index

The more than 74,000 names in this index were gathered from archive documents of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, the Colonies and Defence. The name index was originally compiled by the Pension- and Benefit Board (Leiden) in order to verify the claims of individuals applying for support based on the War Act. Each name on the original list has a symbol indicating where it can be found in the archives. The website only displays the names; no other information about individuals has been provided in order to protect their privacy. If you wish to find more information about a person on the list, please consult the study room staff at the Nationaal Archief.
