The Netherlands is divided into twelve administrative regions, called provinces.   All provinces are divided into municipalities (gemeenten), 431 in total.  The following are links to our Netherlands webpage as well as the 12 provinces.  The name of the municipality (if known) in which one or more of our ancestors was born, married, or died is also listed. In addition each webpage contains a direct link to the Table of Contents of our Photograph and Image Galleries for many ancestral locations.
