The Municipal Archives has digitized early colonial collections from New Netherland (present day New York state) for New Amsterdam (present day New York City). 

Ordinances drawn from the Records of New Amsterdam for the period 1647-1661 and their corresponding translations are now available at

The other records online are Translation of Dutch Records, 1647-1654, Ordinances of New Amsterdam 1647-1661 Translated by E.B. O'Callaghan and Records of New Amsterdam Edited by Berthold Fernow

Digitizing the records and posting them online are the first steps in making the City Archives more accessible.

Translation also available for images
