New Netherland, New York Genealogy
Life in 16th and 17th Century Amsterdam Holland: Introduction
LIFE IN AMSTERDAM
Olive Tree Genealogy is pleased to present Life in Amsterdam, a series by Cor Snabel of the Netherlands. Cor has written an informative and fascinating account of what life was like in Amsterdam in the 1600s and earlier. As Cor explains in his preface below, life in New Netherland would have been very similar to that in Amsterdam.
Because I know only a little about the history of New Amsterdam, but a lot about Amsterdam, I have written a few short stories, not about the history of Amsterdam, but about the history of the inhabitants, the "Amsterdammer". Since the Dutch colonists must have brought their culture and habits along to New Netherland, many of these stories reflect the way they must have lived.
I hope you enjoy these stories.
