Here's what is in this issue of the magazine:

Going Dutch: “Come and Go: Population Registers in the Netherlands, Part 2”
Dutch population registers after 1850 provide invaluable insight into the lives of our ancestors. These population registers make it possible to follow a person from page to page, from register to register, and from place to place. Not only do they provide a snapshot of where they lived, but they also explain where they moved to! By John Boeren
