The Open Archives Provides records and additional information for 174
million people in the Dutch and Belgian archives. The website is:
https://www.openarch.nl/. Searches are predominately free but for some
features such as showing ancestors in a pedigree, automatic children search
or downloading the results as PDF, GEDCOM, XLS, or CSV a subscription is
required. Information is provided in the following languages: Nederland,
English, French and German. The display from search results gives
information such as name-given and surname; "role" such as civil servant,
owner, year, place and the source-such as population register and which
archives the information is available,
I tried the name A. Cohen in the search bar and 204 results came back with
A. Cohen. The sources varied from military, population registers, notarial
records, royal resolutions, death, census records, civil registration
marriages and more. Some of the records are transcriptions only, those
where the original record is available an icon of a scanned page is next to
Open archives also has a newsletter which free and access to the newsletter
