About us

Who are we?

A foundation…

The genealogy foundation was founded on January 26, 1990. And since then there have been several changes in the board. At the moment there are seven board members who introduce themselves below.

The most important are of course the members, who have contributed a lot of information and fun in recent years. Although there are about fifty members, no financial contribution is expected from them. Previously, an annual contribution was mainly used to pay for the Family Days.


The purpose of the foundation is described in the articles of association. And an important part of that is:

Conducting, conducting and promoting genealogical research, both in and outside the Netherlands, concerning the Sparreboom family and coordinating, documenting and publishing the obtained data.

This has resulted in approximately 65 family magazines and a fully digitized genealogy of more than 10,000 persons. Later this website was added for publications and we hope to release another book.
