Slaves to New Netherland

(Dutch control period)
There are several GENi dot com projects that list slaves given the name <ANGOLA> and variations, among which are:

  1. New Amsterdam Baptisms (53 times)
  2. New Amsterdam Marriages (12 times)

<ANGOLA> and <VAN ANGOLA> was one of the most prominent surnames among slaves in New Amsterdam. There is much to be studied about the descendants of these individuals as families spread out across North America after the cessation of Dutch rule. ~• See:

  1. New Amsterdam Origins ~ African Immigrants
  2. Ramapo Mountain People
  3. one New Amsterdam van Angola line that stretches to the present day
