  • The Family Tree collection [PHP]

    The Family Tree Collection is maintained by volunteers of Akevoth.
    Final inspection of new material or updates is executed by: Sara Kirby-Nieweg, Kees Kinneging, Ben Noach and Dirkje Bobbe.

    This section contains genealogies submitted digitally (in gedcom format) by others to the Dutch Jewish Genealogical Data Base, some are digitalized by Akevoth with the consent of the people who handed them in.
    As a rule, details about anyone born within the past 100 years whose death has not been confirmed, are not included in the date base. If we are asked for such details, we provide them only with the express written consent of the person who submitted the genealogy.
    Responsibility for completeness and accuracy of the data rests fully with the people who submitted them. Nevertheless, the staff of Akevoth does check each genealogy for logic and reliability.
    Links to personal genealogical websites are not included in this section, but shown in a separate section. However, in certain instances and as agreed upon with the person submitting the genealogy, some of the genealogies appear in both sections.

    Rules of conduct for the submission of family trees:

    1. A family tree submitted, must allow full use of its material , for non-commercial purposes, free of charge, without restrictions or copyright limitations.
    From now on, we shall have to refuse the submission of a tree, or we shall delete an existing tree, respectively, if the submitter does not agree to this free exchange of information for the benefit of the non-commercial genealogical community.

    If material to be found in the tree was copied or received from others, full references and detailed sources must be added to it. If we receive a complaint of what is considered as unethical conduct of this kind, and the complaint is found justified, the tree will be taken off the website. Of course the submitter of the family tree so affected can protest and we shall try to get things straightened out and settled in a friendly manner among the parties, so as to enable to reinstall the family tree.

    Names with Dutch prefixes such as van, ter and van der are alphabetized according to these prefixes. For example, van Gelder is indexed under V and not G, ter Beek under T and not B.
