“The Dutch: Emigration to North America” is a tour for people from North America who want to come to the Netherlands to explore their Dutch roots. It is organized by the Association for the Advancement of Dutch-American Studies (AADAS) together with Witte Travel and will be held from 29 April to 11 May 2020. My friend Mary Risseeuw is one of the organizers, and I highly recommend this tour.
