Peeping at the Neighbors… Molenbeersel – 30 August 2022

The Molenbeersel of 2005 naturally looked different from today. Our way of “peeping” also changed: less overloaded and better adapted to changing circumstances. Today’s focus will be on the creation of Molenbeersel as an auxiliary parish to Neeritter (1806) and as a municipality (1845). Both are unique and intertwined.

Practical info: MOLENBEERSEL, TUESDAY 30 AUGUST 2022 Start: 19.00 hrs at the Stegel, Weertersteenweg 363, Molenbeersel (Kinrooi). Parking suggestion: There is space to park next to the Stegel. Enter from Weertersteenweg.

Heritage conservation, from the word heath, is research into one’s own living environment. Local history is an intangible cultural heritage and includes all sciences on a local or regional level, with the aim of acquiring local knowledge.
The research can focus on the history (e.g. through archaeology), geography, demography, genealogy, dialectology, toponymy, geography, biology and ecology of a place of residence or environment. Local history can focus on both the present and the past.

A genealogy is a compilation of all persons from the same family, starting from the oldest known ancestor in the male line (generation I), which is called progenitor. These persons may have different surnames (with variants).
