THIS IS A LISTING OF ALL EMIGRANTS FROM THE NETHERLANDS TO LATIN AMERICAN DESTINATIONS IN THE YEARS 1835 1880, ARRANGED ALPHABETICALLY BY FAMILY NAME, AS CONTAINED IN THE OFFICIAL DUTCH RECORDS, STAAT DER LANDVERHUIZERS NAAR NOORD AMERIKA OF ANDERE OVERZEESCHE GEWESTEN, LOCATED IN THE ALGEMEEN RIJKSARCHIEF IN THE HAGUE. THESE LISTS ARE SUPPLEMENTED FOR THE YEARS 1835 1847 AND 1878 1880 FROM LANDVERHUIZERS LISTS LOCATED IN THE PROVINCIAL RIJKSARCHIEVEN IN FRIESLAND, GELDERLAND, GRONINGEN, OVERIJSSEL, UTRECHT, AND ZEELAND, AND IN THE PROVINCIAL GRIFFIE OF ZUID HOLLAND, AND IN THE GEMEENTE ARCHIEFDIENST OF AMSTERDAM. NAMES OF EMIGRANTS WERE ALSO ABSTRACTED FROM MICROFILMED COPIES OF THE GEMEENTEN BEVOLKINGSREGISTERS AT THE CENTRAL BUREAU FOR GENEOLOGY IN THE HAGUE. MICROFILMED AND XEROX PRINTED COPIES OF THE ORIGINAL EMIGRATION RECORDS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE COLONIAL ORIGINS COLLECTION, HERITAGE HALL, CALVIN COLLEGE, GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, 49506, AND IN THE ARCHIVES OF THE COMMITTEE IN THE EAST ON HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS OF THE CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH, PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY. THESE EMIGRATION RECORDS WERE PRIMARILY OBTAINED THROUGH THE GOOD OFFICES OF MR. Y. C. SPYKSMA OF PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY, CO CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE IN THE EAST ON HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS OF THE CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH. THE CODE BOOK WAS DESIGNED BY ROBERT P. SWIERENGA AND THE ABSTRACTING OF EACH ENTRY WAS ACCOMPLISHED WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF HERITAGE HALL ARCHIVIST WILLIAM K. REINSMA, STUDENT ASSISTANT ELIE KRAMER, AND SEVERAL OTHER CALVIN COLLEGE STUDENTS WITH FLUENCY IN THE DUTCH LANGUAGE. DRS. HENDRIK VANSTEKELENBURG AND DR. GEORGES C. P. LINSSEN AIDED IN TRANSCRIBING ACCURATELY THE NAMES FOR NOORD BRABANT AND LIMBURG PROVINCES RESPECTIVELY. THE KEYPUNCHING WAS BEGUN IN 1966 AT THE CALVIN COLLEGE DATA PROCESSING CENTER, UNDER THE DIRECTION OF GORDON LEWIS, AND COMPLETED AT THE KENT STATE UNIVERSITY COMPUTER CENTER.

FOR EACH OF THE ENTRIES, THE RECORD INDICATES NAME, SEX, AGE, OCCUPATION, RELIGION, ECONOMIC STATUS, TAX ASSESSMENT CLASS, NUMBER OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN AND SERVANTS IN THE HOUSEHOLD (NOT NAMED INDIVIDUALLY), STATED REASON FOR EMIGRATING, DESTINATION, YEAR OF DEPARTURE, AND PROVINCE AND MUNICIPALITY OF ORIGIN. BY ORDER OF THE DUTCH MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR, OF DECEMBER 21, 1847, THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS WERE REQUIRED TO RECORD THIS INFORMATION ON EACH EMIGRATING HOUSEHOLD OR INDIVIDUAL AND FORWARD THE INFORMATION ANNUALLY TO THE MINISTRY IN THE HAGUE. BECAUSE THE NATIONAL LISTS ARE INCOMPLETE PRIOR TO 1849 AND IN 1878-1880, THE COMPILER HAS AUGMENTED THE LISTS FOR THESE YEARS FROM MUNICIPAL RECORDS.
