Dallas Morning News News for Dallas, Texas Lifestyles Columnist Lloyd Bockstruck
In 1877, a group of scholars interested in the history of Huguenots outside France formed an organization that produced an amazing genealogical tool. Within 25 years, they had created a card index of all the Huguenot and Walloon church registers for the period 1566 to 1812 in the Netherlands and Belgium. They also included many from Germany.
Most important, they indexed the four major Huguenot congregations in France – Montauban, LaRochelle, St. Quentin and Sedan. It has been estimated that this index may contain as many as 3 million entries. This master index is commonly referred to as the Leyden Index. It has been microfilmed and fills 199 rolls. Anyone with colonial Dutch, French, or Pennsylvania "Dutch" (German) ancestry would be well advised to check this magnificent index for clues to ancestral homes in Europe.
