moultriecreek on 2008-01-27This site uses a database containing genealogical information on emigrants from the Dutch province of Drenthe, which was compiled by researcher Arend Everts from Hoogeveen. He searched the 1840-1930 census records of all towns in this province and several towns in the provinces of Groningen and Overijssel for 'departed persons'. The data was then checked against information from the archives of Pella, Iowa, Holland, Michigan and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In addition to the emigrant indexes (passenger lists 1820-1880 and American census records 1850-1870) published by Robert Swieringa, 'Emigrants from Drenthe' aims to be a handy resource for genealogical research.
