An Incomplete Bibliography of the Dutch Migration and Iowa Colonies

There are certainly many other helpful sources available, both on the web and in reference libraries. These are just a few that I have encountered. Most are on this list because they were not easy to find, or because it was difficult to find specific details, such as the publisher or ISBN. If you know of other such sources, please send the details to me and I will add them to the list.
