Read the Journal of De Bever, Ship from Holland to New York 1661

Wonderful news for thosewith early Dutch ancestors in New Netherland (present day New York)!

Thanks to Terry Vanderhoof, a translation and transcript of De Bever Journal of May-July 1661 is now on line at The Vanderhoof Project.

You may also view the "passenger list" (the list of names of those who owed passage money) for De Bever at Olive Tree Genealogy Ships Passenger Lists to New Netherland (New York) 1624-1664

Olive Tree Genealogy  asked Terry to tell us how this project to transcribe the ship's journal began. It's a fascinating story! You can read about it here
