Genealogical search

The Archives of the City of Brussels only contain information on persons who once in their lifetime lived on the territory of the City of Brussels. This territory only includes the Pentagon and extensions, Laeken, Neder-Over-Heembeek and Haren.

For people who did not live on the territory of the City of Brussels, one has to contact the municipality concerned (for example the other municipalities of the Brussels Region).

The Archives Service does not do genealogical searches. If you want to conduct a search yourself, you can go to the reading room of the Archives, which contains a large number of tools that can be consulted to obtain information.
