The first objective of The Holland Society of New York, as detailed in our Constitution, is
 To collect and preserve information respecting the early history and settlement of New Netherland by the Dutch, and to discover, collect and preserve all still existing documents, etc., relating to their genealogy and history.
A portion of the Holland Society’s comprehensive genealogical library is now housed at the New York State Library in Albany. Read more about our donation here.
