Welcome to Ree's Genealogy

     This web page is the result of many years of research - mainly into my husband's "Jersey-Dutch" ancestors, who migrated from New Amsterdam to Bergen Co. NJ, Passaic Co. NJ, Morris Co. NJ, and Rockland Co. NY.  As a result of the research, I have published a six generation book The  Hopper Family Genealogy: Descendants of Andries Willemszen Hoppe(n) of New Amsterdam 1651 - 1658.  It has over 340 pages with 40 illustrations and maps.  


Please visit my Rootsweb Website that contains the following:

  • HOPPER-PRATT FAMILY (10,000+ people)
  • EDWARD HOPPER - ARE YOU RELATED?
  • RESEARCHING IN BERGEN COUNTY, NJ
  • MONTVALE, NJ - FROM THE BOROUGH HISTORIAN
  • BIBILIORGRAPHY AND CHURCH AND CEMETERY RECORDS

Any additions or corrections are always welcome.


I look forward to hearing from you.
