Oh, I wish I could go. One of my brickwall ancestors SUPPOSEDLY married in Albany, New York. According to family notes Elizabeth Chatterton b.1828 Ireland married Charles McCarty b. 1808-1815 Ireland in Albany about 1845. I have no evidence however. My 2x great grandparents don't seem to exist before the 1850 census. Ahhh well . . .

I love just a few minutes from Albany. I wonder if I could meet the group. I could learn more about my local resources.
