Born in Batavia

This blog post is an extension of an earlier post published in December 2012. It is a collection of death notices of people born in the former Dutch East Indies mainly in the 20th century. The collection now consists of over 1,200 notices which include birth places.
Recently I ran into a number of city maps of Batavia, all published in the 1920's.  Combining the death notices of people born in Batavia and the city maps may enable family members to pinpoint the exact place where their relatives saw the first light of day.
I am not certain whether Weltevreden and Meester Cornelis were considered to be part of Batavia in those days. On the map it looks like a single urban area. Therefore, I included people born there as well.

On the above map (please click to enlarge) you see eight colored sections:

  1. North Batavia (black)
  2. Tanah Abang (orange)
  3. Tanah Abang north western part (blue)
  4. Molenvliet/Noordwijk (yellow)
  5. Batavia (red)
  6. Weltevreden (green)
  7. North Meester Cornelis (light blue)
  8. Meester Cornelis (red)
You will find all these sections below followed by many surnames of people born in Batavia, Weltevreden and Meester Cornelis.

I find it peculiar that a small text (printed on the top right hand corner) says that this map was published by the Japanese Department of Railways in Tokyo. Apparently already in those days (1920) the Japanese had a certain interest in the Dutch East Indies...
