Most if not all of these works can be found at the Heemkundige Kring in Haaltert.

More data yet was drawn from a  great many publicly accessible websites, most notably the GENEANET project website.

Given the sheer volume of the data and given the sometimes difficult task of deciphering the handwriting on the films, no claim is being made that all the data published on this site is accurate. There are no doubt typos and errors to be found. We welcome any and all information that will allow us to fill in blanks or correct mistakes.

Part of the data published here is also available in bookform: "Gezinsreconstructie Denderhoutem 1796-1910" by R. De Paepe. For information on obtaining this book, pls. contact the Heemkundige Kring Haaltert or send an email to
