"New Netherland Connections" coming to

One of the items in the latest issue of New England Ancestors (Spring 2008, Volume 9, Number 2), published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), was that NEHGS member Dorothy A. Koenig granted NEHGS exclusive rights to digitize and publish the full run of New Netherland Connections on the web site. The announcement says:


New Netherland Connections focuses on the Dutch colonial period (1624-1664) in New York and New Jersey. The journal began quarterly publication in 1996 and continues to date.

NEHGS will create an electronic index to all volumes of the journal, and the search results will allow display of the associated scanned pages. There are currently forty-eight hundred published journal pages.

Look for the first issues of New Netherland Connections on the NEHGS web site this spring.


This is wonderful news for researchers with colonial Dutch ancestry. I must admit that I have never heard of this publication, but I'm going to go looking for it at Carlsbad Library. Or I'll use the NEHGS web site, since I have a bit of Dutch colonial ancestry and have several "problem ancestors."
