New York City Wills, 1665-1707

Collection of will abstracts

Description

New Amsterdam became New York City and a part of the British Empire at the Peace of Breda in 1667. This database is a collection of will abstracts, originally published in the late 19th Century. Spanning the years 1665 to 1707, it includes records of early Dutch, Swedish, and Danish residents, as well as English settlers who came after the peace. Each record reveals valuable information about the individual, often about family members still living and witnesses to the will. With nearly 5000 records, this collection can be a valuable database for researchers of early New York residents.
