More Description

These records were originally published in three separate New York Holland Society year books. Heritage Books, Inc. offers them here consolidated into a single volume without any of the superfluous society news and information. The first section consists of an historical sketch of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church and the complete baptism records from 1666 to 1788. The second section consists of the complete marriage records as well as an account of the founding and early history of Bergen, which was the first permanent settlement in New Jersey, established in 1660. The third section contains the church burial records, membership rolls and minutes of the consistory. This section also contains brief biographical sketches of Bergen's first settlers. Baptism records usually consist of the child's name; the names of the parents, witnesses and sponsors; and the dates of birth and baptism. Marriage records usually consist of the date of first proclamation of banns, the names of bride and groom with their places of birth and current residence, the date and location of the wedding, and the name of the officiating minister. Burial records usually consist of the person's name, the family ties, and the dates of death and burial. The Holland Society of New York took great care in translating and arranging these records. There are illustrations, supplementary information in footnotes, and each of the three sections has an every-name index.
