Municipal Archives digitizes New Amsterdam documents

The New York City Municipal Archives has recently provided online access to a series of documents relating to New Amsterdam.

The collection, “Records of New Amsterdam, Ordinances 1647-1661,” is drawn from the collection of New Amsterdam and Common Council Minutes from 1647-1834. The records include manuscripts of proceedings, resolutions, minutes, accounts, and correspondence of Dutch and English colonial governments and corresponding English translations.

Future online collections will include records documenting the settlements of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.
