Zeeuws Archief

The Zeeuws Archief (‘Zeeland Archives’, housed in Middelburg) is the principal archive for the province of Zeeland, the most south western province of the Netherlands, and for the municipalities of Middelburg and Veere. ‘The Zeeuws Archief holds records and collections of all governmental institutions and many private organisations which were or are based in the province of Zeeland and in the villages and towns which now form the municipalities of Middelburg and Veere. In detail, the Zeeuws Archief holds records or collections created or acquired by:

  • The regional and provincial government of Zeeland
  • Federal government agencies based in the province of Zeeland
  • Villages, towns, parishes and municipalities which now form the municipalities of Middelburg and Veere
  • Non-governmental, private organisations like churches, associations, companies, families and private persons which or who are of significance to the history of Zeeland or the villages and towns which now form the municipalities of Middelburg and Veere
  • Several other collections with documentation and images of historical and topographical importance like maps, charts, drawings, pictures and engravings of the villages, towns, islands, waterways, events and people of Zeeland’

Parts of the collection of the Zeeuws Archief have been digitized and are available online: in August 2014 over 35.000 photos, drawings, postcards, and images were available, dating from the Middle Ages until the present day (the number of digitized items is increasing). It is possible to search the digitized items by limiting a search to ‘Afbeeldingen.’ Basic search is possible, after which the results can be further limited to elements such as place, street, type of material, and collection.

Images are shown in high definition and can be downloaded in jpg format.
