Welcome to Roots2share Greenland

Many photographs taken in East Greenland are now in two museums in the Netherlands. Greenlanders may recognize their ancestors, their grandparents or themselves in the pictures. The museums in the Netherlands have set up a cooperative project with two museums in Greenland with the aim of returning scanned photographs to Greenland. The photographs were made by Gerti and Noortje Nooter in the period between 1965 and 1986, mainly in Diilerilaaq (Tiniteqilaaq). Maybe you can find photos of your family or concerning the history of your village. If you know who the people in the photos are, or if you would like to give other information about any of the photographs, you can write it on the website in Danish, East Greenlandic, West Greenlandic or English. Write down your own personal stories and questions.
