The Rotterdam City Archives preserves, promotes and makes available the municipal government historical records as well as historical private archives of companies, families, associations, churches and other organisations. This way we promote the history of the city and provide access to the documents that are telling the stories.

In addition to the municipal government records of Rotterdam, we also holds the records of the municipalities of Albrandswaard, Barendrecht, Lansingerland, Ridderkerk, the recreational amenities board of Rottemeren and the Hollandse Delta water authority.

All the archives can be searched through in Dutch using keywords, names and date ranges.
