Am finally writing my own family history (maternal and paternal) and hopefully pulling together 40+ years of research, intending to go back 7 or 8 generations. ALL my ancestors are from NY from the Revolutionary War on and before that from NJ, RI, MA and CT. NONE left NY until my generation (me). Have been all over NY collecting information from family, from various county and state offices, historical and genealogical societies, cemeteries, churches, etc., so am thrilled so much is online these days, as I write and recheck sources, and make new discoveries.
