New York Library

I was researching (Sinclair & other family names) in the New York Library & Archives in Albany, plus the Montergomery Archives, this week & found the following info:

United Presbyterian Church, Broadabin, Fulton County, NY
Infoon Duncan Sinclair & Christy McNaughton; William Walker & Jannet Sinclair; Daniel Sinclair & Jennet McKircher; James McLaren & Christian Sinclair; and other Sinclair

Albany had the following microform, but did not look at it:
