Welcome to my genealogy page. I have been researching my family history for about 5 years. I have had lots of fun with it even though it can be frustrating at times. Most of my research is in the counties of Clinton and Franklin in northern New York state and in Westchester and Rockland counties in the southeastern part of New York state. Alot of my ancestors immigrated from Canada but I haven't even begun to search the records there.
