The City Archives for Amsterdam’s worldwide residents!

Amsterdam is home to more nationalities than any other city in the world. Its inhabitants all make the city what it is, a bustling melting pot of people and cultures. Every person who has come to Amsterdam to settle has made a life for themselves here. They have all made their mark and put down roots. The City Archives is keen to retain the heritage of its migrants for the future. For this we need help!
