This dataset is a cleaned version of the transcribed account book of an anonymous Dutch trader in Ulster, NY, published and edited by Kees-Jan Waterman and J. Michael Smith. This dataset documents the social connections between 156 Munsee people between 1712 and 1732, and has been prepared for network analysis by regularizing the spelling of names and using information from the published version of the account book to match individuals who appear under differently spelled names where possible. Source/Target pairs for network analysis were created for individuals with documented interactions with one another, such as people who bought gifts for another person, people who vouched for the credit of another person, or people who traveled together. The network is assumed to be undirected. Date information for edge creation is not included in the dataset but is available in the published version of the account book.
