Kinship Eastern NY genealogy books by Arthur C.M. Kelly. These are an important contribution to genealogy.
Some of the new full-sized, softcover versions are not completely readable, however. The text or index is
often down inside the binding, sometimes even behind a very thick staple which cannot be removed without
ruining the pages. You should check before you order because they won't allow you to return anything despite
what they might say. A major researcher and I have both given up trying to get better copies or refunds or an
exchange for another item. CD versions of Kelly's previously published records were not always transferred
accurately by the transferring company. On a baptism CD by Ancestry, all Gardiniers are listed as Gordiniers,
unlike the spelling in the transcription of the Caughnawaga RDC records from which they were taken.
Therefore, you can't find them. On a Family Tree Maker CD, way too many people were erroneously assigned
to an Austerlitz, Columbia Co. cemetery (I have been told that that CD is no longer being sold).
"Names, Names & More Names - Locating Your Ancestors in Colonial America" by Mr. Kelly (1999) is one of
my favorite books. Published softbound by Ancestry, the center pages began falling out in 1-1½ years, and the
book is ready to break into two halves along the inadequate paper spine.
Purple Mountain Press Books about the history and people of New York State.
Ye Olde Directory Shoppe (Maureen Readey) Has CDs of directories, mostly 1859, for various cities in New
York and other states, including one directory each for Albany and Troy . The 2002 price is $9.50 for CD's.
