Mission Statement

BELGIUM-ROOTS was created in July 1995 for the purpose of assisting the descendants of Belgian emigrants/immigrants living abroad in tracing their Belgian roots and exploring their Belgian heritage. Participation is free of any charge. There are no direct or indirect obligations, financial or otherwise, except for the total and unconditional respect for the personalities and the opinions of all participants.
