Note:

  • Members of these families lived in the city of Albany for more than two generations before 1800.

  • Many, many name variants are readily encountered!

  • Spellings of family names have been standardized here for consistency.

  • Some of those without a family page are linked to the earliest available family member in Albany.

  • Some of these families have undergone a CASHP Family Reconstitution.
