The Van Deursen Family

(Updated Databases) Permanent link

Manhattan Island 1626This genealogy was compiled by Captain Albert Harrison Van Deursen in 1912. It traces the descendants of Abraham Pietersen (Van Deursen), who was was born in Haarlem, Holland, where he was baptized November 11, 1607, in the Dutch Reformed Church.

"It is probable that Abraham Pietersen and his wife left Haarlem for America very soon after their marriage, as no baptismal records of any of their children are found at that place between 1630 and 1635, and he is known to have been in New Amsterdam, now New York, in 1636, when he was recorded as 'of Haarlem.'"


This database contains 29,300 name records from the two-volume, 725 page book.
