Thanks for creating your website and keeping it online. I've used it hundreds of times
over the years, especially for the Rickard Index of Columbia Co., burials. It was a
godsend in the days before FindAGrave and is still a more complete list of cemetery
With so many trees online now, some folks new to genealogy think it's easy and just a
matter of matching names and dates. If anybody really is interested in doing it right, the
original records are absolutely necessary. Any site that can provide them is important and
your site still has many resources not available on Ancestry, FamilySearch etc.
Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Subject: [NYCOLUMB] My genealogy website
My genealogy website was put online in 2000. It grew to over 1300 links
to local vital records plus genealogical aids. About 150 webpages were
composed by me. Links get broken over a period of time when a webpage
or whole website get deleted, or when a webpage gets moved or renamed.
It can be very time consuming to relocate a webpage, if it still
exists. Rather than delete my website, which nearly happened, I
recently decided to repair the broken links in the most valuable
Birth and Baptism Records
Mixed Vital Records
If a page of links has had its links repaired, at the bottom of the
heading you will find a statement to that effect. It also includes the
date that section was finished. Links to Genealogical Aids will
probably not be repaired, but I have written a webpage explaining how
you might find those missing webpages yourself. More on that later.
The search engine had also stopped working (July 2014), but that has
been replaced this week.
