This web site was started over 20 years ago to support the Knickerbocker Historical Society at Schaghticoke, NY and to provide a spot for sharing family information. The genealogy world has greatly changed from my publishing a paper family newsletter in the 90s to having massive commercial on-line sites and DNA based genealogy available today.
have kept this site available to provide the base family genealogies and as a
link to the Society. Research of a more general nature will always have a home
here. Welcome Cousin.

Bryan got lost after meeting George at the Albany library - and on his way to Litchfield and Dutchess counties ended up on my door step begging for a cup of coffee.
Rumor has it that some interesting information was found in Dutchess County that will lead to an upcoming study and some field work. Bryan is having way too much fun in retirement.
It was great to meet Bryan as all our collaboration has been by email.
Announcing a Major New Study
I am adding a major piece of research entitled “Knickerbockers in Smithville Flats, NY” to our knic.com web site. The study is the result of over 20 years of research by many people. Bryan’s investigative work in Central New York was critical to developing these links.
The parents of Alvin 1816 have been tentatively identified with a very high probability - and now research and DNA studies can be concentrated in proving a relationship to his newly identified brother. Dave’s Y37 tests show three mutations so I suspect additional test takers in the Solomon 1754 lines will prove very worthwhile in substantiating this developing theory.
Another brick wall has been broken by proving that the Solomon who died in 1831 in Cameron, NY was the son of Abraham of Litchfield county. Revolutionary War pension files and his son Solomon’s death certificate in 1906 proves his linkage to his father Abraham - as well as identifying his wife. Gretchen’s long search is finally complete.
