Yvette Hoitink is a professional genealogist in the Netherlands.

Yvette's company, Dutch Genealogy Services, specializes in helping people from all over the world find their ancestors in the Netherlands. Most of her clients are descendants of emigrants who left the Netherlands in the 19th and 20th century. Her services include doing research, interpreting documents for English-speaking clients, preparing visits to places of origin for clients and giving lectures.

Yvette writes about Dutch Genealogy on her blog (in English) and has a column in Gen, the quarterly magazine of the Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie [Central Bureau for Genealogy, the largest genealogical repository in the Netherlands]. Together with Jeroen van Luin, she wrote a successful book about internet genealogy.
