Re: DE BEER: Naming traditions #germany #sephardic #names


I have done extensive research for my family tree with Jews in the Netherlands. I have been successful finding great records using this website:
It is a free website, and you don't need to signup or login in to use. I would suggest you use Jacob de Beer in the name to search on as I didn't find any Jacob Simon de Beer, but 86 pages of just Jacob de Beer, in various permutations. Then sort on date, to get the records in date order, but many early records were undated. You can filter by location, source, role (groom, father, registrant, etc). Especially if you know this man's partner's name, it can help you narrow down the results.

This website also includes Netherlands population registry information that was used to determine who was living where. If you don't find a birth record, you may be able to find the person in the population registry with an accurate birthdate, and the members of his household. This may help you find his correct parents and/or children.

Good luck.
