Newsletter will be sent out soon!
Of course we will dwell on Henry Hudson, English captain of the Dutch ship Halve Maen. Four hundred years ago he had just failed to find a route to the East Indies through the northern passage, and he was about to fail to find a passage through the Americas. He may have failed to find what he was looking for, but his discoveries did sow the seeds for the New Netherland colony and had far-reaching consequences.
The newsletter will also make a tour of the twelve Dutch provinces and highlight the main online resources of each province.
All this and more in the upcoming edition of the Trace your Dutch roots newsletter. Stay tuned!
