Curaçao Church Records from 1714 to 1831

One of the best resources in finding ancestry information on a family member has always been church records. Within a few lines, you can easily discover more about an ancestor than many times in public records. Church records are a great source to find out when an individual was born, the name of parents, the town or country their parents are from, and even at time locating grandparents information.

While I don’t read Dutch, it doesn’t mean that it should deter me or anyone else from finding records on an ancestor. The good thing is that there are plenty of tools out there that will help you along the way. The church records are in Dutch but remember that we have our trusty Google Translate and if that fails, then join Genealogy Translations on Facebook that will assist you with translating records, no matter the language. The following records are for a Roman Catholic Church in Curaçao named Saint Anna or Sint Anna. The records run from 1714 to 1831. The series is broken down as follows and are available online.
