Research on
My origins
Completes the puzzle

Africans attach great importance to knowing your origins.
Slavery disrupted that tradition.

Family tree research

Who are your ancestors?


Research at the municipal civil affairs department, in slave registers and in boxes 'in the attic' helps to gain insight. It is also good to have conversations with parents, uncles, aunts, grandfathers and grandmothers.
