New York Church Records

(New Databases) Permanent link

 New York Map OutlineThe Holland Society of New York was founded in 1885 to record the history of New Netherland, a 17th century colonial province that corresponds to present-day New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut, and parts of Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. The NEHGS library collection contains this society's year books that were published between 1886 and 1929. These resources contain articles relating to historical records of the region as well as the functions and proceedings of the society itself.

This week, we have added databases pertaining to two articles published in this resource. "Record of Burials in the Dutch Church, New York" (1727-1803) was originally published in 1899. It contains more than 3,500 individual name records. "Some Early Records of the Lutheran Church, New York" (1697-1771) was originally published in 1903. It contains more than 3,000 individual name records relating to marriages and baptisms. Names of parents and spouses have been included for both record sets, when available.

New York, NY: Parish Register of All Saints' Church, 1824-1862 is another database referring to New York church records available through our website.
