Many Americans with ancestors from the Netherlands can expect to trace their forebears back to the 17th-century in the New World. Several reasons account for this phenomenon. In the first instance, the Dutch actually preceded the British in colonizing the Middle Colonies, beginning with Henry Hudson’s explorations in 1609 of the river that bears his name and culminating in the Dutch settlements at Albany and New Amsterdam (later New York City). Also important, prior to arrival of the Pilgrims and Puritans in New England, a number of these English Protestants had actually fled to Holland--where some married their Dutch-speaking co-religionists--before they ultimately sailed for the New World. Despite the best intentions of English mercantile policy, a number of Dutch traders and their sometimes human cargo would make their way to the Americas, further leaving their mark on the colonial population.

Each of the following 14 reference works is a major source on the Dutch origins of colonial Americans. Even better, we have reduced the price on each one of them by up to 20% through 11:59 PM EDT, this Thursday, May 16, 2019. If one or more branches on your family tree has a Dutch ancestor on it, we encourage you to consider these excellent publications most carefully.
