Burgerlijke Stand and DTB sources [16 mei 2014]
Hello Dick, I just received your email.
We don't currently have a help page explaining the Burgerlijke Stand or DTB source entries on WeRelate. Generally, I make a few edits to pages of new Dutch users and they will then use that as a guide for future entries. We are slowly renaming our Burgerlijke Stand source pages to be in the format Source:Gemeente, Provincie, Netherlands. Burgerlijke Stand. There are still some pages, however, that appear as Source: Gemeente, Provincie, Netherlands. Registers Van de Burgerlijke Stand. You can either use the misnamed pages as they are, or rename them to the new format.
Regarding the DTB's, we recently made a decision to title those pages Source:Gemeente, Provincie, Netherlands. Doop-, Trouw- en Begraafboeken. An example is: Source:Wonseradeel, Friesland, Netherlands. Doop-, Trouw- en Begraafboeken and here is an example of a Person page with a DTB source: Person:Romkjen Pieters (1). At the moment, only the DTB pages for Friesland are created. If you need pages for other provinces, you can create them using the title format above.
De aangrenzende dorpen
Dag Diba, er zijn nu drie sjablonen die te gebruiken zijn voor de aangrenzende gemeenten (1900).
Greetings Friend! [11 July 2016]
Glad to see anyone interested in the spaces for nobility!
I have nothing against the addition of external references for the various language forms of Wikipedia. Feel free - however - I concluded (after years of doing it differently... :(! ) that the approach was rather inefficient. Rather than trying to add such individual links - I changed over to using the Wikidata reference. Since "Wikidata" is the language-neutral identification authority for all things (and people) in the greater WP universe - one reference/link effectively gets you ALL the languages that there may be.
I also strongly suspect, that such identifier numbers are more apt to stick with a person, even when WP page names change.
I hope this seems helpful/reasonable. Would appreciate your opinion in any case.
Thanks for working out here!

Not having as much experience as you have, I'm not quite sure how this reply will show/appear. However, I'm glad to get some comment on my feeble attempts to make the information more readable. Thanks! I'm not quite sure what you mean with "the Wikidata reference". Can you give a link to an example?
Anyway, the different language references often show effectively where the many alt names come from (Willem, William, Wilhelm, Guillaume). Today I started working on this section because I found there are many duplicated persons around. Sometimes because of the language, but also because titles have been coupled to the names in many different ways. (seigneur, heer, lord, duke, count, compte, princess, king, etc.). In my opinion, the only correct surname for these medieval times is the name of the "house". So my wife's forebear is "Jean II de Châtillon" even though he is best known as "Jan, Count of Blois". But then: what's the best way to show his title, and the very many other titles he had ..... Suggestions, examples, links welcome!
