I can try to outline the procedure so someone else might benefit from it too. Finding the original records really makes genealogy so much more fun, and you never know what you might find.

1) Finding the record on
We have:
- name Jan Roerink
- death date 20 Nov 1922
- municipality Groningen, province Groningen
- record # 1352
(maybe easier to write it down so it is right in front of you)

2) Go to -> select province Groningen

3) Select municipality Groningen (

4) You should now have a listing of links to all the documents available for the city of Groningen.

geboorten - births

huw.-aangiften, huw.-afkondigingen - applications to marry
huwelijken - marriages

huwelijkse bijlagen - marriage supplement documents ( difficult to search but often very rewarding, these are the documents that have to be submitted in order to get married. For example a certificate of military duty.

Overlijden - death records

5 Near the bottom you should be able to find:

10699841 Overlijden 1922 [463 img]

So there are 463 images for that year, we know it is record # 1352 but we also know that November is about near the end of the year so jumping to image 400 should get us fairly close.

But we are gettign ahead of ourselves we need to click on the link:

10699841 Overlijden 1922 [463 img]

we are at image 1 you should be able to see the line :

Netherlands, Civil Registration, 1792-1952 Groningen Groningen Overlijden 1922
Image of 1 of 463

Where you see image 1 of 463 fill in 400 as an educated guess, 400 being somewhat towards the end of 463.

If all done correctly you should see this page:

and it looks like we are at record 1282 so we did not quite go far enough.

425? brings us to record 1362

the actual record can be found on page 422

A little bit of bad luck the record number has accidentally been covered up with only the "2" visible but towards the center of the page you can see the name Jan Roerink underlined it is the right record.
