Tracing Your Dutch Roots

March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Many communities across the United States boast a rich Dutch heritage, owing their founding and regional culture to the influence of Dutch immigration. This presentation will explore resources and techniques to trace your Dutch ancestors in the United States and back into the Netherlands, with additional emphasis on cultural and historical context that surrounded the lives of your Dutch ancestors. Presenter: Alexander Tolksdorf.

Alexander Tolksdorf is a genealogist and speaker, specializing in German, Dutch, and Eastern European research. He began his personal journey in high school, inspired by a trip to Ellis Island and through a correspondence with his great uncle in Germany, who also was an active family historian. All four of his grandparents immigrated to the United States in the 1950s following the Second World War; as such, the majority of his research experience and focus is in European sources.


We hope for a hybrid meeting, but the meeting may be virtual only, depending on restrictions. Please check back a week before the meeting for information regarding location and registration for the virtual presentation.
