With the permission of the author, Jean Sanders has made a generous offer to do lookups in a book that she owns: "Upstate New York in the 1760s : Tax Lists and Selected Militia Rolls of Old Albany County 1760-1768" by Florence Christoph (1992, Picton Press, Camden Maine). Old Albany Co. consisted of over 20 of the modern counties in eastern NY (east of Lake Ontario and north of an imaginary eastward extension of the Pennsylvania border). The book is almost sold out and may not be reprinted.
Thanks Jean !

Subject: [NYCOL] Old book collection, St. John's Church, Stockport

On a recent trip to Columbia County, I met with Rev. Mark Deeble at the
Church of St. John the Evangelist on Chittenden Road in Stockport, who
showed me their collection of 19th century books. Back at that time, the
church functioned as a public library for its members and they have hundreds
of old books all covered in brown wrapping paper. They are stored in
cupboards in the balcony at the back of the church. According to Mark, some
of the books have been cataloged, but many have not. If you know of anyone
who would be interested in cataloging or helping the church to properly
preserve these books, please have them contact Rev. Mark Deeble 518-828-3925
