Thanks to all who responded to my query about NYS Vital Records. As the old
saying goes, "misery loves company", it's good to know that I'm not the only
one with the problem. It really bothers me, though, that they want an
upfront payment of $11 for such a slow service with no refund if nothing is
found. I guess all of my dealings with user-friendly NARA have spoiled me!
It took me a long time. So long I had given up and wrote the county
directly. The county came back and said they didn't have it. After that
the state sent me a copy.

Thumbs up, Bert, for a great day at the Gathering! The day was well
worth doing, and we are looking forward to next year. It was great to
meet so many of our on-line group and the people who were at the Court
House to assist us were terrific. Thanks to everyone involved.
I'm looking for information about Nellie Mae Juckett b 11-15-1870, d10-31-1891
she had two sisters, Pearl Juckett who married Harry Buell of franklin and
Mary Juckett married Grant Peck and lived in Granton, NY. Thanks, Sandi in
A copy of the first edition [second printing] of my genealogical
compilation, 'The BURGHARDT/BURGET Family In America,' was recently sent
as a gift to the Columbia County, NY Historical Society in Kinderhook
for the use of the BURGHARDT/BURGET and allied families.
This publication primarily includes information about my branch of the
BURGHARDT/BURGET family [with variations of the spelling of the
surname], who were probably
German but lived among the Dutch in the Hudson River Valley around
Claverack, Kinderhook, and Albany in what is now Columbia Co. and Albany
Co., NY and nearby Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA during the
Subsequent generations migrated westward to Middleburgh, Schoharie Co.;
Harpersfield [Kortright], Delaware Co.; and Smithville, Chenango Co. in
up-state New York during the 1700's; Harpersfield, Ashtabula Co., OH in
early 1800's; Livingston Co., MO by the 1840's; Kings Valley, Benton
by the late 1840's; Sutter and Meridian, Sutter Co., CA by the 1860's;
Forestburg, Montague Co., TX by the late 1850's.
The first of three soft-bound volumes includes a 150 page narrative
family and an alphabetical index of the names of individuals included in
narrative as of the first printing in 1996.
The second of the three volumes [Appendix] contains Descendants Charts,
beginning with the oldest BURGHARDT family member that I had documented
1996, as well as an alphabetical Name Sorted List of those individuals,
BURGHARDT/BURGETs and allied families who married a BURGHARDT/BURGET.
A Descendants Chart for the first seven generations, as well as for four
main branches of the the descendants of Jehoiakim6 BURGHARDT, Sr. and
WHITE are included. Those four branches were: Judith7 BURGET and Josiah
DODGE; William7 BURGET, Sr. and Abigail ANDREWS; Milburry7 BURGET and
[Sally] ANDREWS; and Jehoiakim7 BURGET, Jr. and his two wives, Katherine
DODGE and Catherine Anne Sarissa PATTERSON.
The third volume of the set contains a 'Locality Sort List' generated on
the LDS 'Personal Ancestral File' program of the places and dates of
birth, marriage, death, and burial of those individuals currently listed
in my data base.
Copies of the original printing were also sent to the following
and genealogical societies and libraries around the country in those
where BURGHARDT/BURGET families migrated and lived:
Berkshire Co. Historical Society Great Barrington, MA
New York State Library Albany, NY
Dutch Settlers Society Albany, NY
Old Stone Fort Genealogical Library Schoharie, NY
Ashtabula Co. Historical Society Jefferson, OH
State Library of Ohio Columbus, OH
Allen Co. Library Fort Wayne, IN
Missouri State Archives Jefferson City, MO
Oregon State Archives Salem, OR
Benton Co. Historical Society Philomath, OR
California State Library Sacramento, CA
Sutter Co. Historical Society Yuba City, CA
Texas State Library Austin, TX
Montague Co. Genealogical Society Bowie, TX
State Library of Oklahoma Oklahoma City, OK
In researching this publication, an extensive network of individuals was
developed; and I have also especially enjoyed communicating with many of
to whom I am also indebted during my subsequent research since that

NYS can take over a year. NYS is notoriously slow in processing
genealogical requests. Requests on current individuals takes precedence.
The state is actively encouraging people to get the information from the
proper town clerks.
NYS also wants payment in advanced and they will only check dates on either
side of year submitted. Heard that they now have a form they want filled
out. It might also be noted that the cutoff date is c.1883. They will take
your money on earlier dates but the information wasn't taken before
c.1883 -if then.
NYS has a web site with specifics. Had it but can't find it.

Does anyone on the list have a feel for how long it takes NYS Vital Records
to respond to a request for a copy of a birth, death, or marriage
certificate? I submitted a long series of requests starting about mid-March
of this year, and haven't heard anything yet. Ed Kohinke
While my home is just north of the Delaware Co border, recent events have
forced me to
move further north...maybe next year...in the meantime, let me echo the wishes
of all unable to attend the weekend festivities in hoping you all have
phenomenal success in research, as well as enjoying many new friendships, the
flavor of Delaware Co history & and its amazing beauty.
I came on board the list late and am not fully aware of the agenda and
being made available. What I have seen is truly amazing and illustrates what
when communication between various resources opens up. It appears in many
ways virtually all of Delaware Co has opened its doors to
genealogists/historians. This is how history and genealogy should
work...everyone benefits and much new history will be learned & shared. I am
sure many deserve rich applause but will here trumpet Joyce R.
It should be clear to all now why the Delaware Co Genweb site is one of the
best in the whole international genweb system!!! Good work Joyce!
My families include: Baldwin, Beebe, Burgess, Glendenning, Graham, Graves,
Huxford, Jackson, Johnson, Scott, Stilson, Strong, Vandeusen, Wannemacher,
Waring & Weed
Hope everyone has safe travel and a wonderful weekend! I had a great trip
there a year ago and can't wait to go back next year!
Names researching in Delaware Co. - RUSSELL, CLAP, DELAMETER, DUMOND,
I was not able to attend this year and I see you have a date planned for next
year. Myay I ask what the date is since my family and I are already planning
a trip to the east coast for next year and maybe we can attend the event.

wasn't good for me this year, but I am looking forward to being there next
year. I wish you all much success.

Several weeks ago we had a discussion on the list concerning the
difficulty in obtaining old military records. Last October I requested
records from the National Archives for an ancestor. I was notified that
the records were not in Washington and to write to a military office in
Buffalo. I immediately received a reply from that that the records
would be sent to me within sixty days.
Over the next several months I wrote three letters of inquiry, with no
reply to any of them.
BUT last Saturday I opened my mailbox to find a Priority Package from
the Buffalo office containing three pounds of documentation! In the
papers I learned that John V. Finkle was indeed our ancestor,
verification of his parents, and that he had moved to Pennsylvania from
NY and that is where he died. This may be a clue for me to locate
Elisha Finkle, his "missing" father.
Don't give up hope if you are trying to get records. My sixty day wait
turned into seven months, but now that I have the information ask me if
Well it sounds like Sat. will be a blast, Unfortunately I will have to
cancel, my boss through a wrench in the works today , seems we (entire
dept.) have exactly 48 hours to move a 100 ton piece of equip. into a new
bldg. , must be up and running by 7:30 am Monday , so alas we will be
working all weekend.
I really wish I could be there, was planning on it, Man I hate work. Next
year I will be there for sure, enjoy and have a great day.
