Dutch Atlantic connections: the circulation of people, goods and ideas in the Atlantic world, 1600-1795

DOI

The database "Dutch Atlantic connections" gives information on 7666 journeys made by Dutch ships in the 17th and 18th centuries. These include ships of the Dutch West India Company, Dutch naval ships returning from the Caribbean, interlopers illegally operating in WIC monopoly territory, private traders sailing to the Caribbean, Africa, Surinam and New Netherland. Most journeys are standard trading ventures, but there are some notable journeys, including Henry Hudson’s journey to North America. This is an integrated database containing data from earlier created datasets of the historians prof. dr. H. J. den Heijer, dr. W.W. Klooster, dr. R. Paesie, dr. J. Postma, dr. C. Reinders Folmer – van Prooijen and dr. J. Jacobs. The database contains also a limited number of data from the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database.
The goal of this database is to provide a platform into which information on Dutch Atlantic trade may be integrated. It is hoped that the number of almost 8000 journeys in the database may be expanded with further research.
