New York City’s Municipal Archives has posted some 10,000 pages of colonial manuscripts, along with early Dutch maps and illustrations. The newly digitized trove contains ordinances from 1647 to 1661, when the island of Manhattan was run by the Dutch and known as New Amsterdam. It also includes handwritten and typeset English translations from the 19th century. The release marks the start of a digitization project planned for the new year.
