About two weeks ago I joined Facebook and started Albany County Hilltowns History and Genealogy group where members can post and exchange information on the history of the hilltowns of western Albany County and the genealogy of the people who lived there. We already have fifty members. Right off we decided to work on two big projects:
- A series of books on the history of each of the hilltowns and the families that lived there.
- A web site focused on the history of the four hilltowns and the families that lived. The idea is to have detailed information about the families, their farms, and their homes. It will also have information on the history of the schools, churches, cemeteries and businesses.
Here are some sample pages:
