New Netherland Project: A Translation Program.
New York State Library, Albany.
The 17th century Dutch colony of New Netherland, which was located between New England in the north and Maryland and Virginia in the south, has received little attention from most historians of colonial America. The New Netherland Project was formed in 1974 under the sponsorship of the New York State Library and the Holland Society of New York City. The project's goals are to translate and publish the thousands of pages of official Dutch records now held by the New York State Archives, State Library, and local repositories. The translation and publication of these records are providing researchers with the source material necessary for a balanced assessment of the Dutch impact in North America. This publication provides background information on the project, copies of two Dutch colonial documents that have been transcribed and translated, articles and reviews about the project, letters of support, and a list of project donors.
