Almelo is a medium sized town in the eastern part of the Dutch province of Overijssel. The present municipality consists both of the town itself, and of the surrounding country, the former Ambt or Heerlijkheid Almelo, which was the realm of the Count of Almelo.

The Almelo Archives site is in Dutch, but has (under Genealogie, Zoeken op Naam) birth (1811-1910), marriage (1811-1931) and death (1811-1956) certificates with the scans! The site is easy to use, even for non-dutch speakers.
