Cape Panel discussed at Jan de Vries workshop

Anne McCants participated in a workshop at Yale University (March 30-31) on the Early Modern Economy in honor of the work of Jan de Vries. In a panel on ‘the Dutch and their Overseas Economies’ she introduced the workshop participants to the Cape Colony record linkage project, for which there was real appreciation and enthusiasm!  She also gave as an example of the kind of work made possible by the panel, the paper under development by Erik, Jeanne, Auke and Anne, “Wealth and Marriage at the Cape: Consanguineous Unions as a ‘Strategy.’”
