New York Church Records
This week past has brought much discussion on NY state church records.
I have used usgenweb.org and then the county to gather what I could find prior to asking for more help.
More help is found in many places. I do not know if the Way Back Machine will find Barbara's site anymore.
I use Cliff Lamere's site often.
It has over 1,300 links and 200 webpages. Make sure you read his front page regarding search engines before you get stuck or lost.
As most of you know, or maybe not Pat Connors has specialized in Rensselaer County Records.
She has posted over 93,000 names for Cemetery data base. Also updated Church records 29 Jan 2012.
This site represents what the usgenweb.org projected when they created the program.
Another great resouce is : Troy Irish Genealogy Society - Transcription Projects
Click on Projects then on Church & Synagogues.
It covers more than Irish surnames and covers a vast area for information.
Today I see that another name has been added to this list.
This person covers much of Albany County. So I will get to know her well I suspect. Her name is Betty Fink.
I think many people get confused when the sites left the usgenweb.org domain and went under rootsweb.ancestry.com site. These are all free sites no pay involved.
Give them a try and if you have good luck let us know or if you know of other great New York sites share that here also please.
