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

I have not yet completed this list and will put it online in stages, so be sure to return to The Olive Tree to check for the finished product. 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
