Dutch term – Stamboek - The Global Tofay Global Today

A stamboek is a military service register.

Outside genealogy, the word stamboek is also used for a studbook, a register of the pedigree of purebred animals. This usage has led several genealogy websites, including Ancestry, to mistranslate the stamboek military records as “studbooks.”
