Welcome to Amsterdam ...

So far, we found very little information about Amsterdam. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Amsterdam to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Amsterdam - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Amsterdam, please Contact Us.

While we don't have the exact location of Amsterdam , we believe that it would have been located within present day Auglaize County<2>.

The pronunciation of Amsterdam: AM-stur-dam<3>

When the people of Amsterdam referred to themselves (known as a demonym), they are believed to have used Amsterdamian<4>

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Amsterdam, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Ohio's counties, including Auglaize, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Amsterdam. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<4>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Amsterdam refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Amsterdam may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<5>Area code (567) is an overlay for area code (419).
