Hello and welcome to the Albany Co., NYGenWeb! I am your county coordinator, Debby Masterson.

The Albany Co., NYGenWeb has been neglected for some 11 years. I hope to build the site into a useful resource for those seeking their ancestors in Albany County. BUT, I need YOUR help to accomplish this! If you have information pertaining to residents of Albany County that you would be willing to share, i.e. bibles, wills, deeds, please email me at the address above. If you have documented information about births, baptisms, marriages and deaths, please email me with them, along with the source for your information.

There are many, many Albany Co. Sources in various libraries in the Capital District. I live in Florida and do not have access to these. If you would be willing to copy and scan un-copyrighted data and send it to me, I would be happy to pay any costs incurred. I can't build this website alone, so won't you please help me? Thank you :)

Everything you see here in our free, fully searchable database was created, and is still being created, by volunteers. We hope you'll find your ancestors here! And we hope that you yourself will share source records you have by simply emailing your transcriptions of them to me, Debby Masterson, in plain-text form. It is through valuable contributions from people like you that this site can grow and become even more helpful to genealogical researchers from all over the world whose ancestors used to live in Albany County, New York.

Some of you will undoubtedly want to contact me asking about your ancestors. If you do, please understand that I only have information about my own ancestry. If the information you seek is not on this website I can and will try to suggest alternate places to look, but that is all I can do. I live in Florida and do not have access to sources in Albany County. There are professional researchers familiar with county resources that will be glad to assist you for a fee.

NOTE FROM COUNTY COORDINATOR: If you find a link that doesn't work, or you email someone and your mail bounces, please email me and let me know so I can address the problem. Thanks!
