The purpose of our BELGIUM-ROOTS project is to provide as much information as possible about Belgian emigration/emigrants and our Belgian Heritage for free through our mail-list and our site. Our BELGIUM-ROOTS Team isn't a formal genealogical society but a virtual one and ROOTSWEB is a virtual Library.
A Belgian Club is an association of individuals of Belgian Ancestry living abroad. These Clubs will be listed in a separate section.
By making an annual contribution you can become a member of most Genealogical Societies, and then be entitled receive their periodicals. In most cases you will also have access to their libraries (or independent Libraries) and be able to obtain copies of their members' publications at nearly "cost" price.
You can also obtain publications, etc. from publishers, individual researchers and others. We will call these sources Genealogical Publishers.
We will make a distinction on our site between Clubs, Libraries, Publishers and Societies. Please note that a publisher and members of a clubs and societies, may also be on a individual base a member of our Support Team.
