Become a member of Familiekunde Vlaanderen

Do you want to practice genealogy on a systematic and scientific basis and maybe publish a family-history yourself? Are you looking for the proper software to arrange and keep genealogical data?

Then you definitely have to become a member of Familiekunde Vlaanderen.

Genealogical survey

Familiekunde Brussel does no personal survey concerning your family tree. But we can advise you. Specific questions can be posted at our electronic forum voor familiekunde en heemkunde. Questions in English are welcome.
