I. INTRODUCTION 

More than 20,000,000 Americans trace their ancestry to the Dutch-speaking Low Countries.  Indeed, the Dutch 

were among the first Europeans to set foot in North America in the 17th Century.  The Island of Manhattan became 

a Dutch colony from which explorers spread Dutch influence along the whole eastern coast of the continent.  When 

the waves of immigrants came two hundred years later, they found many settlements already established.   In 1654, 

New Amsterdam offered refuge to Sephardic Jews from Brazil whose ancestors had been expelled from Spain in 

1492.  The newcomers built a synagogue which, when New Amsterdam became New York, was the first 

synagogue in the United States.  In the mid to late nineteenth century, many people in New York still spoke Dutch 

at home.  The immigration waves of the nineteenth century brought thousands of Dutch to the United States 

escaping famine, political and religious discontent, and economic troubles.  These Dutch immigrants settled 

primarily in the Midwest states and on the West coast.  The end of World War II brought an additional wave of 

Dutch fleeing war-torn Europe. 

In considering the facts of Dutch-American immigration, local history and genealogy, the compiler has identified 

handbooks, bibliographies, directories, collections of documents, family histories, inventories of archives

published records, and local histories from the collections of the Library of Congress.  The compiler then divided 

these selected titles into several categories: Archives, Dutch Names, Handbooks, Immigration to America, Records, 

and States.  In some cases, titles belong in more than one category, but we list them only once.  Under “States” one 

will find histories of Dutch-American settlement, but under “Records” or “Archives” there may be registers of 

names from churches or fraternal organizations for the same states.  Under “Dutch Names,” the reader will find a 

listing of books analyzing Dutch surnames and etymologies, while titles focusing on the Dutch immigration 

experience, the bulk of the materials listed, will be found under “Dutch Immigration.”  A perusal of the complete 

list is, therefore, advisable.  Please note also that the full text of some of the titles found here is available online.  

One need only call up the title on the Library’s online catalog and click on the link. 

The intent of this compilation is twofold, to call the researcher’s attention to the carefully selected titles listed, and, 

further, to provide a means of finding additional works on the same subject.  In the Library of Congress Online 

Catalog (

http://catalog.loc.gov

), the “Full Record” for any work will list “Subjects.”  By clicking on a “Subject” the 

researcher will be taken to other titles on his/her area of interest.  Since catalogers do not always assign identical 

subject headings, indeed many books cover several subjects, it is strongly recommended that the researcher do as 

many subject searches as possible.  One may find ten titles bearing precisely on one’s interest, when several more 

searches may turn up a hundred equally suitable. 

The Library provides many other resources for the researcher searching Dutch American genealogies.  Under 

“Bibliographies and Guides,”(

 

http://www.loc.gov/rr/genealogy/bib_guid/bibguide.html



) on the Local History and 

Genealogy Reading Room web page (

http://www.loc.gov/rr/genealogy

),  the researcher may find relevant works in 



400 Years of Daily Life in America (

http://www.loc.gov/rr/genealogy/bib_guid/400years.pdf

) and possibly in other 

bibliographies and guides listed.   

“American Memory”(

http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/index.html

) provides a treasure trove of full-text books, 

journals and photographs.  The heading “Immigration, American Expansion” lists twelve collections.  Please note 

the biographies gathered by the WPA (

http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/wpaintro/wpamap.html

), with a map on 

which one can click on the particular state of interest.  Other American Memory collections that are of interest to 

Dutch American researcher include: 

 

The First American West: The Ohio River Valley, 1750-1820
