The Heritage Exhibition team members have postponed our event for the end of June 2015. The event will take place in Amsterdam, Nederland. The final place /address; has yet to be decided as we have three offers to consider.

       We are re-vamping our information web-site: which should be available to the public-view by November 2012.

Our members wanted to feel comfortable, in summer rather than brace a cold Dutch winter. Alongside the premier, seminars [& films] will be included.

Summer in city activities:: the event originators are planning events, ship trips and city tours in conjunction with the Burgher-heritage Exhibition. The premier evening will be highlighted with a Gala: Dance & dinner.

As all good things take time, postponing the event was a welcome solution. Enhancing the presentation material and giving us more time for the encyclopedia, we kindly appreciate your understanding and apologize for the inconvenience.

The Presentation sector would kindly request for::

       Old family photography in scans, also, family relics / mementoes which would be interesting presentation material.
We only accept scans please without frames as we have to enlarge the photography.

       Coats of arms are being collected, should you have an image of an authentic [VOC period] coats of arms, we would be most happy to have a copy.

The Heritage Exhibition team sends their sincerer thanks and hopes to hear from you soon. Thank you.
