I need to verify baptismal records from the Brooklyn church for around 1659, where can I find those records online?
Olive Tree Answer: Hello Barbara. The first records in existence from the Old First Dutch Reformed Church of Brookyn New York begin in 1660.
The first baptism is recorded 31 October 1660 for Helena, daugher of Adam Brouwer and Magdaleen Jacobs.
The first marriage recorded is 31 Oct. 1660 for Sigismund Lucas and Getruijd Buldering.
These records have been published in New York Historical Manuscripts Dutch.
I'm afraid you're out of luck for the year 1659 and the first 10 months of 1660! See New Netherland section of Olive Tree Genealogy for more help with these early church records.
