A brief excerpt from my book New Netherland Settlers: The Stevensen and Jacobsen Familes was previously published as The European Origins of Steven Janse Coning in the December 2001, Vol. 6 No. 4 issue of New Netherland Connections.

My book completes several years of research into the origins and descendants of Steven Janse Coning who was baptized in 1617 in Nijkerk and settled in New Netherland with his wife Maria Goosens circa 1649. By 1663 Steven and Maria had at least 7, possibly 8 children. After their divorce in 1663 Steven and Maria married other spouses, and Maria had one more known child born to a man named Jacob whose surname is unknown. This book follows Steven, Maria and their descendants to three generations.

The book is 154 pages fully sourced and footnoted. Six full pages of original documents from Nijkerk are included as well as maps. Steven and Maria's lives are set in the historical context of the fascinating world of the early settlement of New Netherland. Steven's newly discovered origins and names of his parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and siblings are documented and sourced. His family's suffering when the Bubonic plague struck Nijkerk in 1636 when Steven was only 18 years old is well documented and included in the book.

Hand-drawn maps complete this book which is part of the New Netherland Settlers series.
