Comment

A massive and authoritative primary source covering seventeenth and eighteenth century Kingston and Ulster County, New York. Because Kingston had the only church between New Amsterdam and Albany for many years, people from all over Ulster County and even farther afield would come to Kingston to have their children baptized, making it one of the most valuable sources for New Netherlands research. Notes on marriages often provide information about the origin and residence of the spouses. It is reliably transcribed and mostly complete, missing only May 1689 to April 1692 marriages and April 1730 to January 1732 baptisms. It is widely available in libraries and is easily purchased on the web.
