The V.Z.W. Geschiedkundige Heruitgeverij (Historical re-editings) is a non-for-profit organisation which was founded to promote studies about local history and genealogy. One way to reach this goal is to re-edit old printed and hand-written books and documents.
We are focusing on the province of East-Flanders (Belgium) in general and on its capital city Ghent specially. Some of the books that we have re-edited are important for the whole of Flanders.
Even if you don't live in East-Flanders nor in Belgium our pages may be very interesting for you. Maybe one of your ancestors is mentioned in one of our books (this will interest the genealogists) or some decisions which were made at Ghent can have their importance for your city or your country (this for the historians among you).
Of all the books that we are re-editing we make a very extensive index in which you will find all the names of persons and places which are mentioned in the book. These indices can be seen on the net. When you click on a title you will see the contents and the index of the book concerned.
Our concept is unique in this sense that you never have to buy a complete book, you can buy the page(s) or the chapter(s) that have your special interest. In this way you can purchase much really relevant information at a very cheap price. However, we sell all our books both on paper and on CD-ROM. See our pricelist. When ordering loose pages, also buy the page before and the page after the page that has your attention, in this way you will not loose the context.
Here you will never have the frustrating feeling that you cannot purchase a book with some very interesting pages because the whole book is to expensive.
Here you can buy books, but you can make them yourself also!!!
All our books and documents are printed on strong paper of 80 g/m2.
Entire books are finished as "paperbacks", when you order loose pages or chapters we offer you free the title page of the book from which they come. From now on, we will only send loose pages on CD-Rom.
Books on CD-ROM are in HTM-format, you can read them
with your internetbrowser. See our pricelist.
When ordering entire books you pay per page only 0,07 euro. The price of each book is mentioned next to its table of contents, so you don't have to calculate.
Loose pages only cost 0,10 euro.
For books on CD-ROM you only pay 0,03 euro per page and collections cost even less, for our collections on CD you only pay 0,02 euro per page. See also our price list.
Per order we have to charge 4 euro for handling and shipping charges to people who live within the euro-zone, people who live outside of the euro-zone have to pay 8 euro.
We are legally obliged to tell you that you have the right to try our books for 7 days,
and if you are not satisfied, to send them back without any cost for you. However we will ask
not to make use of this right. As a non-for-profit organisation we work only to cover our costs
and we are not able to bear the expenses this right would cause.
Most of our documents are in Dutch, others are in French or in Latin. We offer a translation service. You understand that we cannot do this free. Per 10 words to translate we will charge 0,25 euro.
We can offer this translation service for translations from Dutch to English and French and from French to Dutch and English.
