While most of my ancestry is Swedish, including Walloon Swedes, I have one New York - New England line which I am backtracking from Washington Co. to Massachusetts and Connecticut. I "finished" my Irish Mooney and Armitage research with the publication of an article in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (Sept. 2015), partially based on records of glass factories in Woodstock, Ulster Co., and Peterboro, Madison Co. Business records have proven to be the linchpin in my pre-1850 New York research. I am president of a Minnesota society focusing on New York - Pennsylvania - New England genealogy, and I write occasional articles for our journals.
