Hello and welcome to the Albany Co., NYGenWeb! I am your county coordinator, Debby Masterson. 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: If you find a link that doesn't work, or you email someone and it bounces, please email me and let me know so I can address the problem. Thanks!
