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.
I have kept this site available to provide the base family genealogies and as a link to the Schaghticoke Society. Knickerbocker Research will always have a home here. Welcome Cousin - we are all related.
Early Dutchess County
A new study entitled “Death and Burial of Harme Janse Knickerbocker” defines the location of the original Dutchess County Harme Janse farm and details of the early family burying ground. New proofs are provided for the various locations. Link
Bryan has just completed a massive rework of the “Many Benjamin Knickerbockers” that was originally completed in July 2017. The original 32 pages has been expanded to 65 and several errors corrected - as well as much new material added. Link
New Family Tree - Update
Bryan has rebuilt his Ancestry database into a new “Unified Genealogy” that now contain 7100 individuals and 2700 families. We tried both site builders included with Roots Magic and both failed. We want a site separate from Ancestry and have temporarily parked it on the Roots Magic provided site. I am exploring third party site building programs and await high speed internet at my place to proceed. Link to Temporary New Site.
We have completed our survey of the 1850 Heads of Household that are key to researching the early family. This pure 1850 male connected family study will be a subset of the new Unified database and will be used to identify missing lines for future research.
The virus has distracted us a bit but we are back at work.
