Source to add to NYS church records[edit source]

See this book, The New York genealogical and biographical record, Volume 49, page 11, which describes the work by Vosburgh 1913-1917.  There are early records for many churches in many counties in NY, all described here: http://books.google.com/books?id=EtgUAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA16&dq=%22dutch+reformed+church+of+union+village%22&hl=en&ei=uI3ITuK3DKPXiAKh1ZnZDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&sqi=2&ved=0CDoQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q&f=true

You can get these transcribed records free online at The New York Genealogical & Biographical Society eLibrary, here: http://elibrary.newyorkfamilyhistory.org/cdm4/browse.php?CISOROOT=%2FRR&CISOSORT=creato%7Cf&CISOSTART=1,1


I hope you will include this on your NY Church Records page.  I trust you will look this up for yourself and word this a lot better than I do here before putting it out there.
