Addendum: Thanksgiving & Flemish and Dutch New York

David Baeckelandt, a generous scholar who writes the fine blog The Flemish American has posted a most interesting article about the Flemish influence on the American holiday of Thanksgiving, which you can read here. In fact, he has several posts on the Flemish-Pilgrim connection.

Another charitable scholar who writes about Dutch America is the Rev'd Dr. Daniel Meeter, minister of the Old First Reformed Church in Breukelen (Brooklyn). His blog can be found here. Enjoy--they're both pretty sweet blogs.

  1. Hi Naomi,
    Thanks very much for your very kind and generous reference to my blog post. Thank you also for directing me (and others) to the Rev. Dr. Daniel Meeter's blog which I am about to delve into. I look forward to your postings as well!
    PS: An heirloom from Flemish grandfather looks very much like the tools you have posted at the heading of your blog (he was a carpenter/painter).
