Ancestry.com has just published a new record set: “U.S., Dutch Reformed Church Records from Selected States, 1660-1926”. This record set was created by the Holland Society and currently contains records of Dutch Reformed churches in New York and New Jersey. Records from Dutch Reformed churches in other states will be added in the future.

The record set consists of an index and images. Beware that the images are not of the original church records, but of later transcriptions, some done by hand and others by typewriter or computer. Transcription errors such as misread letters or omitted entries can be expected, but this is still a valuable source that will help many Americans with early New Netherland roots.
