The archived material of the Dutch Reformed Church in Namibia is stored as a private collection under the auspices of the National Archives of Namibia.
Researchers need to get the written permission of the General Secretary to gain access to documentation.
An index to this collection is web-based, which means that researchers can locate the specific record(s) they wish to peruse from the convenience of their own desk. When they approach the Office of Synod for permission, they can then easily specify which records they wish to access.
The rebuilding of the index is currently ongoing. A computer crash wiped out the previous database and to add insult to injury, it became clear at this critical point that the back-up of the data file was also corrupt.
