What is Friesarchiefnet?t

A lot of people do not know how to find various archives, or what information is held in those archives. The FriesArchiefNet aims to help these people by presenting information about archives in Fryslân (Friesland) in a simple form on the Internet. We hope that this website will show you the way round the archives in Fryslân and stimulate you to visit them.

What information can be found on the FriesArchiefNet

The website shows in a clear way where and when archives in Fryslân can be consulted. The website aims to give the titles (titels) and inventories (inventarissen) of all archives.

An inventory will show you which archives you will be able to see or ask questions about. To actually see the archives and consult original archive documents you will still have to visit the organisation where they are kept. This is why the site also gives you addresses (adressen), names of people to contact ('contactpersonen') and times of opening and closure ('openingstijden') of the various organisations. When visiting our site, you may find that not all the inventories have been entered yet.
