Dutch in Wisconsin resources

On occasion of the conference The Dutch-American Experience in Wisconsin: 1840-present which is taken place today I thought I write a post about some sources that are available for researching your Dutch immigrant ancestors in Wisconsin.


I’ve also uploaded some resources that are available to me to Flickr to make them available to a larger group of people.

I have posted several sources that are available to me to Flickr. This collection will grow in the future, so feel free to check back there now and then. With a great thank you to Mary Risseeuw for giving me all these records.

I have tagged the images with the last names occuring in them, so you can search my photostream for a last name to search my entire collection at once.

So far I have uploaded these resources (with some samples):

See the Geography section of this website for an overview of the resources that are available for specific provinces in the Netherlands, or the Research section for general tips on how to research your Dutch ancestors. Some stories about Dutch immigrants in Wisconsin can be found in the Emigration Stories section.
