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.
Any additions or corrections are always welcome.
I look forward to hearing from you.
