A Note from our Registrar about Yearbook Volume 45 as Posted on Ancestry.com

The pages of Yearbook Volume 45 referenced on Ancestry.com only contain a list of potential ancestors and our members who were descended from those ancestors at the time of the yearbook. There is no genealogical information about anyone in those pages. 

The Dutch Settlers Society of Albany does not have extra copies of Yearbook Volume 45.  You can find exactly the same information in any of our more recent yearbooks and we do have extra copies of those if you're interested.

Please contact Cheryle Webber to obtain copies of past yearbook volumes.

Welcome ~ Welkom

Founded in 1924, the Dutch Settlers Society of Albany strives to perpetuate the memory of the individuals who settled in the greater Albany area during the Dutch colonial period of 1624 - 1664.  The Society is charged with collecting and preserving information pertaining to the early history of Albany (Fort Orange, later Beverwijck) including genealogical records of the settlers and their descendants.  

What we do...

Many people associate us with the Albany Tulip Festival and the ceremonial "Scrubbing of State Street" and participation in those events is one way that we work to share Albany's rich Dutch heritage
