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.
Revision to Last Month’s Report
Bryan has found new information in several legal notices of children being indentured in Amenia. He has added several pages and modified a line as a result. Please visit “Knickerbockers in Amenia, Dutchess Co, NY” to view the updated material.

The Society Needs Your Support
The Knickerbocker Historical Society is requesting donations to purchase the iconic 1805 sketch of Johannes and Elizabeth Knickerbocker. The drawing will be lost to the family if $6,000 is not raised for its purchase. This portrait belongs at the Mansion.
I never pass the hat for the Society or knic.com but this time I am asking - as the greater family really owes this one to Stana’s memory and everything KHS has accomplished.
Link to Go Fund Me or send a check (noting that it is for the portrait) to KHS.
Thank you, Howard
