Ancestors unKnown Netherlands

The hidden stories that come to light through genealogical research are added to the teaching programme. In this way, not only is ‘written’ about, but also ‘written’ by the pupils themselves.


In search of family history
Ancestors unKnown Netherlands is intended for primary and secondary schools. Pupils are invited to go in search of their ancestors and their family history through oral history interviews, genealogical research and archive research. At the same time, they are offered history lessons that offer a multi-voiced perspective on colonial and migration histories.
