Since the twentieth century a growing number of people have become interested in the make-up and history of their family.
We know from experience that this interest increases as people reach middle age.
Our institute provides genealogical information for persons interested in their ancestry, particularly those who emigrated from the Netherlands and Indonesia.
We also provide the opportunity of publishing details of their families.

Joan Abel Hoppe Foundation / Genealogical Institute at Nijmegen (GIN)
The aims of the foundation, which was established by deed dated 11th January 1980 at the office of notary public Mr. B.H.O. Hoge at Nijmegen, are stated in the deed as:
'The promotion of genealogy in general and in particular the advancement of genealogy as it relates to other sciences, the archives in general, the notary public office and clinical genetics (patient care)'.
The institute tries to reach these goals by assisting with, and coordinating genealogical research at universities and hospitals, by providing information from its collections, by making available genealogical forms and system cards in general use, by compiling genealogical indexes and other manuscripts and by the issuing of publications.

The foundation has the free use of the genealogical collection of Rainer Hoppe and manages his copyrights. It provided the impetus for the microfilming of all birth, marriage and death certificates of all municipal Registry Offices in the province of Gelderland from 1811 to 1902 and of the marriage annexures from 1811 to 1842.
These records are available on microfilm and microfiche at the State Archives in Gelderland (RAG) at Arnhem and the Central Bureau for Genealogy (CBG) at The Hague.Our institute has these records and other genealogical source material available on microfiche.
