Henglias is about the inhabitants of Hengelo in Overijssel until about 1950. You can also find this information at www.henglias.nl .
The oldest dates come from the baptismal and marriage records from 1643.

More than 99,000 people from Hengelo* have already found their place here and their number is still growing every day.
*Hengelo people in this context means: persons (or their partners) who were born/married/deceased in Hengelo or who lived there.

Brackets around the name of a person (see example) means that he or she actually falls outside the reach of Henglias, but is important to show the connection.
