These data come the Christian Reformed congregation that existed from 20 January to 11 December 1893, near present-day Alamosa, Colorado. These Dutch immigrants were part of a larger group that were victims of a land swindle detailed by Peter de Klerk in "The Alamosa Disaster: The Boldest of Swindles," Origins (Spring 1986): 22-26. Families are under both the mother's and father's names. The data come from the congregation's membership records in the Archives of Heritage Hall, Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
