New Netherland Project: Translating and Editing of New Netherland Archives

Transcription, translation, and annotation of 17th-century Dutch records of the colonial government of New Netherland. (12 months)

The New Netherland Project will translate 17th-century Dutch records of the colonial government of New Netherland. Written in an archaic form of Dutch, these historically significant documents are effectually unavailable to researchers because of the language barrier. This project will provide access to original colonial archives of continuing legal and historical importance relating to all the New England and Middle Atlantic States. During this 3-year grant period about 1,000 pages of archives from the period 1659-1662 will be translated and annotated for eventual publication by Syracuse University Press.
