I posted a link on the New Amsterdam - Research & Bibliography page - but here you have it too: http://web.me.com/schuffelen/Site/OldNewYork.html
This is interesting, because the author of this web page has listed typical New Amsterdam place names and surnames, and provides sound files so that you can hear how these are pronounced in Dutch. For many non-Dutch speakers, this is interesting because it may provide a clue on why certain names were transcribed very differently over time.

George, being a Dutch (as you know) a smiled what a wonderfull link. What a very good idea. Someone has to do that for the names that are allready found in the projects but not belongs to the more "famous" names.
Just adding more work to the project :-)
