On the 2nd of June 2013 our own Dennis de Calonne has joined the board of the Dutch Indies Genealogical Society (IGV). One of his tasks will be the administration and further development of the brand new IGV website (mostly in Dutch).
The IGV is a Dutch society for genealogical research in the Dutch Indies. A lot of the members have ‘Indische’ root. However, everyone interested in Dutch Indies family history is more than welcome to join.
Members actively make (old) sources available to the public and write genealogies. The IGV published that work. An authoritative IGV publication is the “Indische Navorscher”. Members receive the genealogical yearbook free of charge, get high discounts on the other publications, receive the IGV-Info twice a year and have access to the members-only sections of the IGV website. Once a year there’s a members meeting, with the opportunity to meet, share, learn and eat (“rijsttafel”).
Members as well as non-members can share information and help each other with their research on the newly introduced IGV-forum.
