The Daughters of the Holland Dames is an organization made up of the descendants of the early Dutch settlers to New York. They collected historical and genealogical documents that pertained to the Dutch Colonial period. They were also responsible for establishing memorials to their Dutch ancestors. The organization was founded in May 1895, to promote the legacy of the seventeenth-century Dutch. It is worth remembering that long before it was New York, it was New Amsterdam. And before that it was home to the Lenape Indians. If you look for it, you’ll find a Facebook page dedicated to the Daughters of the Holland Dames.
