Since 1922, The Holland Society of New York has published the quarterly journal de Halve Maen, a leading magazine of the Dutch Colonial Period in America. It publishes new research illuminating the Dutch contribution to American history, and includes essays on various aspects of New Netherland culture.

The magazine is edited by noted New Netherland scholar Dr. David William Voorhees, editor of the Flatbush Church Records and Director of the Jacob Leisler Institute in Hudson, New York. Dr. Voorhees strives to present the broadest and latest research in New Netherland studies by the foremost European and American experts.

De Halve Maen reaches all members of The Holland Society as part of their membership, and is subscribed to by the interested public and scholars, leading universities, and large and small library collections worldwide. Previous issues of de Halve Maen can be found on our website.


The Society has opened our online archives to the public. They are available at this link. Please contact the Society if you plan to use any material included in these archives in a publication, whether online or in print.
