mentions the names of persons who received at their birth one of the mentioned familynames, their partners and their mutual relations.
A comparable index, from the collection of mrs. L. van Santen-Bergmaier, is index B.
'Van Zanten' (Americans) and 'Zanten, van' (Dutchmen) are separately listed.
Often it is easiest to start a search for a partner.
The entries are alphabetical sorted successively on the main part of the familyname, the initials (!), given names, prefixes and birthyear.
Diacritical characters and " 't" are ignored while sorting.
Ages ago an uniform spelling was unimportant; a name with a particular pronounciation was differently spelled in one text.
With several labels for a person, the name may differ from the spellings in the sources.
More than one entry for one person are possible, when it is not evident that the sources concern the same person.
An entry may be an alias; the full information is at the linked entry after '=>'.

The searchfield is insensible for capitals. You may come to an abreviation_, for a group sources,
but then continue with the "Meer …" (More…) button.

an affinity between all persons with that character.
