Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam (New York City) Church Members' List

The pages begin at [497] and end at [539]. Please note that pages [497] to [507] inclusive are not dated, but we know they begin in 1649 and end in 1659. There are 12 pages for this 11 year period (1649-1659 inclusive) so you can estimate what year each page contains.

I have added my own notes as [Lorine's notes: ]. I have not included all notations found in the original publication
