The New Netherland Project was established under the sponsorship of the New York State Library and the Holland Society of New York. Its primary objective is to complete the transcription, translation, and publication of all Dutch documents in New York repositories relating to the seventeenth - century colony of New Netherland. This unique resource has already proven invaluable to scholars in a wide variety of disciplines. It also serves to heighten the general awareness of the major Dutch contributions to America over the centuries and the strong connections between the two nations.
/ / The New Netherland Project is supported by the New York State Library, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Friends of New Netherland, and most recently by a grant from the Prins Bernhard Fonds.
