The purpose is to provide a forum for the discussion of the genealogy and history of the Town of Berne, New York and surrounding hilltowns of Albany and Schoharie Counties, (Knox, Westerlo, Rensselaer, Wright, Middleburgh). Permanent information on the genealogy and history of Berne is posted on the Berne Historical Project site.
The photo is of Reuben L. Weidman who was in the 15th Cavalry during the Civil War. He was born in Berne, enlisted in the Town of Wright and was buried in Westerlo. That is what I mean by the Hilltowns are interconnected. We are all family.
