Additional information or help with writing or translating? 

Do you want to help by writing articles or finding additional information about the residents, architects and the year of construction etc. of the individual “grachtenhuizen” in books, internet and the Amsterdams Archive?

We are looking for people who would like to investigate this kind of information and to help us here. Or help with translation from Dutch.

Are you the resident or the owner of such a house?

If you have information about the history of your premises we would like to share your information on this website. Further we are looking for old pictures of the houses and especially of their interiors. We would also like to visit you to make photo's of the interiors to put them on the site.


When you have remarks or additional information to the texts already on the site you can mention them here or send them to
