MONTGOMERY COUNTY NY PERSONAL FAMILY SITES
Listed below are genealogy URLs
from our queries boards and guestbook signings, and sites directed submitted by family
historians. We think they all deserve boosts in hit counts for the dedication and hard work put into them by these researchers.
Does your site showcase ancestors from Montgomery County, New York? If it does, tell us where it is and who they are and we'll take a look! Personal genealogy-related sites only, please, with content related to this county.
2/28/15 - We've just completed another link check, deleting more BAD LINKS. We lost OVER HALF of the sites originally showcased here over the years, mainly due to the demise of the old geocities/heartland, aol and att free server space. Some researcher personal sites that were hosted for free on other domains were "frozen" due to these large genealogy sites' changes in business plan. Some personal pages that researchers worked so hard on are now "archived" and "read only" and no updates can be made. Please let us know when a link doesn't work. We have NO way of finding out a site's new location unless it's maintainer notifies us. If we knew the current URL, there'd be no bad link. The same goes for email addresses - if we were aware of and had a researcher's current address, we wouldn't have an obsolete email link posted.
Don't see your homepage? All links that went nowhere have been removed. Fair warning! We don't have the time to track you down. All sites reported "File Not Found" and email addresses not working will be deleted immediately. If you'd like to be re-listed on this page, take a moment to resubmit your web address to the site coordinators, as well as a one-sentence description of the Montgomery County-related contents. We'll review your site for sufficient county content and technical user-friendliness.

"I have a link for WALRATH, WALLRATH, WALRAD, WALLRAD (and other spellings) Birth Records from the early Mohawk Valley Church Records. This is from a list prepared by one of the historians at the Montgomery Dept. of History and Archives in Fonda. It was compiled for Mrs. Verne A. Flint in 1971. It covers both the Lutheran and Reformed Churches of Stone Arabia, Reformed of Herkimer, Reformed of German Flats, Reformed of St. Johnsville, St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Reformed Church of Fort Plain, Reformed Church of Mapleton, and Dutch Reformed of Caughnawaga (Fonda). I hope to add links for marriages and other records as well. The Walraths married into many other families, and were sponsored by many other families. Just a caveat - there may be errors of transcription. The records are available in the Fonda Archives for research. Jerry Walrath"
