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.
