This website is the result of some twenty years of researching into my husband and children's Jersey-Dutch roots.  The Hoppers migrated from New Amsterdam to New Jersey settling mainly in Bergen County and the nearby areas of Passaic, Morris and Hudson counties in New Jersey and New York City and Rockland County in New York.  As a result in 2005 I published a six generation book
The Hopper Family Genealogy; Descendants of Andries Willemszen Hoppe(n), of New Amsterdam 1651-1658.  For information on ordering the book click here.

Since my retirement from teaching I have enjoyed working with a few private clients on their family research. Since 2005, I have been a Certified Genealogist, for more information on my professional services click here.

I look forward to hearing from you.
