Surnames: De Taeye
From the surname distribution I do see that the surname has his main concentration in the region Geraardsbergen-Ghent. In Flemish Brabant you will find today 1 to 3 with that surname in most municipalities. A connexion with my DE THAEYE branch is possible, if you do find a link with a branch in LAEKEN (Brussels).

For a start I advize to visit the BELGIUM-ROOTS site. You could go to the Infodesk for a start.
On that page we do have "How to ..." links.

For ROTSELAAR the LDS microfilms do exist for:
- Births 1796-1890
- Marriages 1802-1870
- Deaths 1802-1890
Some of the records for 1796-1802 can probably be found in HAACHT (municipal canton).

You can also (if the microfilm isn't available yet) write to the municipality in English, and ask for a copy of civil registrations (if before 1901). About 10 USD each. I do allways advize to ask also for a copy of the population register. In youre case try 1871-1880, 1881-1890 or 1891-1900. The last will probaly be the most usefull.

And if they exist on microfilm, try to view the "marriage annexes" of a marriage registration. You will find in those films one document for each date on the marriage registration. Ex: if the death of a mother is noted, you will find a copy of her death registration in the "annexes" with her birth date, parents, spouse(s), etc ... .
