Genealogies of the Dutch Settlement
in Seventeenth Century America
 
Speaker: Michael Lewis
February 18, 2020, 7pm
 
Michael LewisMichael Lewis will share insights and advice collected from over fifteen years of conducting genealogy research on the Wyckoff family in America when the first generation of the Wyckoff family arrived on the ship Rensselaerswyck in 1637. Included will be a 60 year timeline of family movements and events, and a genealogy of the layer-upon-layer of multiple data sources that began to reveal extremely detailed and personal information on the Wyckoff family, one of the truly founding families of America.
 
Subjects presented in the discussion will include: The startup of the New Netherlands settlements at Fort Orange, Rensselaerswijck, Beverwijck, and others near present day Albany, New York, and also Amersfort, Breuckelen, Boswicjk, Haerlem and others near Manhattan Island, Long Island and New Amsterdam; a short discussion of religions in the Dutch colonies, Government authority, Dutch leaders, immigration, Indian wars, and living in the colonies; records generated on emigrating ships and throughout the Dutch colonies; Dutch genealogy sources and where to find them; and a short discussion of the status of current and planned Dutch genealogy projects in America and around the world, and the potential impact on future Dutch genealogy research.
