The Association of Blauvelt Descendants is a family association that was founded in 1926 to bring together the descendants of Gerrit Hendrickszen (Blauvelt). The Association is dedicated to promoting an interest in the history and genealogy of the early Dutch settlers in New Netherland, with particular emphasis on Gerrit Hendrickszen van Deventer, who married Marie Lamberts Moll on 7 May 1646 in the New Amsterdam (NYC) Dutch Church, and the descendants of Gerrit's eight surviving children, Hendrick, Huybert, Johannes, Margrietje, Abraham, Isaac, Marritje, and Elizabeth. The ABD holds Annual Meetings, sponsors a variety of family activities, and publishes historical and genealogical information including its award winning newsletter, The Blauvelt News.
