Very cool. I literally just started working on a sourcey source page https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Sources-New_Netherland_Settlers to add to our collection https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:New_Netherland_Genealogy_Resources Dropbox links would be a nice addition!

The New Netherland Institute just published some new documents to boot though I'm having trouble figuring out what's been added. http://www.newnetherlandinstitute.org/research/online-publications/
Thanks! That's a nice comprehensive compilation of valuable resources.
I have just begun to read this wild new source that is hard to read but very informative - perhaps others would like to see it as well


forgive me if you already have gone through this one' I have so little time to check things out

 see ya later good people

@Navarro: How I wish those early 20th-century family historians had been more consistent in identifying their sources! That book looks pretty solid -- and it's well written, but we do need to try to confirm the information by going back to the original records. Thanks for sharing the link.
I did not get far enough to see that he did not cite! Dang,  because it looks like he so carefully researched it - the parts I read anyhow - well on we trudge, trying to find the proof of the past that created us!

thanks Ellen
Well.. at least he does mention in the introduction where many of the records he used came from.  You just have to go find them and figure out where to attach them.
Yes, he describes the sources for his information, and he quotes some documents. Its just that he's not real explicit about where he got info.
Hi Ellen, I got your original point and agree, I was just trying to squeeze out some lemonade.
here is another thing I need to look at again - some of these things might be verifiable with a little time
