MARINE MUSEUM

The following series was translated from the original Dutch by Willem Rabbelier and Cor Snabel of the Netherlands. It is published with their permission on The Olive Tree Genealogy pages.

Introduction

The book/thesis of Jaap Jacobs contains a list of about 500 ship crossings between Amsterdam, the Netherlands and New Amsterdam over the period 1609-1675. In only 56 cases the presence, but not the names, of colonists on board is mentioned. We will never be one hundred percent certain how many, if any, colonists other ships carried. Please bear that in mind while browsing and/or consulting this data.

Note from Lorine:
I have added links to any online passenger lists for the ships noted below
