New Netherland Bibliography

The New Netherland bibliography is a comprehensive list of scholarly, nonfiction publications that are broadly related to the seventeenth-century Dutch colony and its legacy in America. Its purpose is to facilitate research across the disciplines in areas such as history, archaeology, anthropology, genealogy, and ethnology.

This Zotero library (compiled by Julie van den Hout and Stephen McErleane and currently over 1,000 sources) still needs some cleaning up, but in order to not delay, we present it here. As always, let us know what we've missed.
