A Guide to Dutch Manuscripts Relating to New Netherland in United States Repositories.
Gehring, Charles, Ed.
Intended to furnish researchers with the location of source material relating to New Netherland, this guide describes the documents and collections held by United States repositories and provides accessibility to them by noting available printed or manuscript translations and indicating whether copies of the originals have been collected for the New York State Library. The time period covered by the materials cited in the guide extends from the earliest years of Dutch West India Company activity in New Netherland to the final relinquishing of control of the territory to the English in 1674; all documents are manuscripts, with one exception, and all are in Dutch (except for some English notations and endorsements entered later). Organized in a fashion similar to Hamer's "Guides to Archives and Manuscripts in the United States," this guide lists the repositories in alphabetical order by state; the documents in each repository are listed in chronological order. Each entry begins with a key word followed by a brief description of the essential information in the document. The date of the document and the repository's identification number or code are given, and information on translations and available copies of the document is provided. A list of abbreviations and an index are included in the guide. (Author/JD)
