Deacons' Accounts (1652-1674)

First Dutch Reformed Church of Beverwijck / Albany
Written by Janny Venema
The information presented in this book has been translated from old records originally written in the Dutch language. It provides a detailed but rare glimpse into financial dealings (receipts and expenditures) of the deacons in this church in the colony. When interpreting the line item data, the history-inclined reader easily will conclude that the colonists already had a social safety net in place (closely patterned after that for the brotherhood in the Netherlands).
Paperback, 314 pages, Bibliography, index.
