"van Deursen 8000 world-wide" ©
Beginning with a notion by Theo Aldenzee, who’s maternal forebears are namesakes of “van Deursen”, he estimated (in 1999) there could have been a number of approx. 8000 persons bearing that name in past few centuries. From there it developed into a comprehensive atabase.
In 2004, Guus van Deurzen joined the project, followed by Nick van Deursen in 2007. This team, scanned all available official sources for namesakes, culminating in the collection called “van Deursen 8000 World-Wide”, which is due to be published in 2011 by “familiearchivaria”.
As a reward for the many thousands of hours spend on this project, the 8000 quartet would appreciate a non-commercial approach be taken by would-be family-tree researchers or any other person or persons wishing to use part or all of this information.
In cases where a commercial interest is intended, permission should be requested and agreement sought on authors royalties.

We must stress that “van Deursen 8000 World Wide” is not the work of qualified genealogists!
Genealogy: This work is not meant to be an “off the shelf” family tree. The research and comprehensiveness is up to the individual.
This project “van Deursen 8000 World Wide” is meant to make research of family history and family trees less time consuming by referring to official sources as much as possible. In contrast to most databases, containing names, places, events, etc, This work concentrates on only one surname, i.e. “van Deursen” and the variations of its spelling.
We also received assistance from Heemkundekringen as

Our respect and appreciation goes to the many transcriptors e.g. Willy Ivits, Pieter Koolen, Henk Beijers, Simon van Wetten, Ludo Boeije, Anton Vissers and many more.
