     Baptisms (all) of the First Reformed Church of Scotia, 1882-1899   (Donald Keefer / Channon M. Moon)  

     Baptisms of the First Settlers of Schenectady   (Robert Billard)  CAUTION:  These records are taken from a

         publication by Jonathan Pierson.  The publication mentions many baptism dates.  Mr. Billard wrongly assumes

         that all of the children were baptized in Schenectady, whereas a great number of them were performed in

         nearby Albany.  Disregard any bp. dates that had a ? in them.  They are just guesses.  I don't think even the

         decade is correct in many cases.

    St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Schoharie - Baptisms 1731-1742   (Betty Fink)  

    St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Schoharie - Baptisms 1743-1757   (NYGenWeb)

    Blenheim Reformed Church - Baptisms 1794-1825   (Sandra Charles /USGenWeb)  Many of these records are

        baptisms.  For many others, the child seems to have a last name different from the parents.  This could be a

        middle name, but there are so many of them, and often they are not the mother's maiden name.
