Gehring on Cudmore
Listen to Charles Gehring, director of the New Netherland Research Center, on Bob Cudmore’s radio program Monday, Feb. 13, in the 9:05 a.m. segment.
Gehring will be talking about the first encounter of the Dutch with the Mohawk Valley. In 1609 Henry Hudson explored upstate New York. Not long after, Dutch settlers arrived in the Hudson and Mohawk valleys.
Traces of the Dutch are all around us.
Fonda, Rotterdam and Guilderland are just a few of the places around here that have Dutch stories to tell.
Telephone directories list hundreds of surnames of Dutch descendants living in this area.
