A Bibliography of Research in Pre-Revolutionary New York and New Netherland

Research in Pre-Revolutionary New York and New Netherland, A Bibliography, by Sharon L. Brevoort, Genealogical Society of Washtenaw County, Michigan (2001), is a webpage that offers hundreds of titles, sources and web links that would be helpful to anyone researching families in colonial New York and New Netherland. The page is organized into twenty-five categories, such as "Church, Cemetery, Vital Records," "Research Guides, "Lifestyle," etc. Included are numerous Family History Library films, with their film numbers, which can then be quickly and easily accessed at the Family History Library Catalog webpage, using the "film/fiche search" option. Many of the titles listed, such as Minutes of the Orphanmasters of New Amsterdam, can now be found online at Google Books and/or at Internet Archives.
