The Kloosterman Genealogy is one of the sharpest looking family 
genealogy sites around. The site uses TNG
(The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding)

They have done a great deal of work on presentation and functionality. 
Usually, family sites have one or the other. 
It’s obvious they take a lot of pride in their work (and deservedly so). 
They cover multiple languages (not an easy thing to do), plenty of 
content to keep you interested, and it’s updated often. Very easy to navigate 
A setup like the one they have, requires a great deal more work 
than many people are either willing to do, or knowledge that they 
don’t have, but software like TNG does make it easier.
