Stallinga-Ganzevoort Holland-Canada Emigration Collection, 1890-1960

This microfilm collection documents the activities of the Nederlandse Emigratie Dienst (NED) Brazil and the United States, but predominantly in Canada. These materials were microfilmed at the former Algemeen Rijksarchief at Den Haag, where most of the original materials have been destroyed. The collection consists of correspondence, reports, lists, and pamphlets regarding emigration, including correspondence from and about individual immigrants. Much of the material came from the Canadian Offices of the Nederlandse Emigratie Dienst, which service was organized in 1913 and lasted till the late 1950s to select and assist Dutch emigrants. Before the body of original documents was destroyed, the Canadian scholar Herman Ganzevoort had it microfilmed with the support of Ir. Gerrit Stallinga (32 reels).
