Albany Hilltowns Genealogy
Visit the Albany Hilltowns Family File

The Hilltowns Genealogy, originally conceived to be a comprehensive genealogy of all Berne families, is being expanded to include all families that lived in the Hilltowns of western Albany County, i.e. Berne, Knox, Westerlo, and Rensselarville. It is intended that when a family or individual left the Hilltowns, the records should show where the individual or family went, and when they died. It does not attempt to follow all ancestors of Hilltown families beyond the first generation leaving the Hill.

The goal is to have every Hilltown family represented completely and accurately. As we develop more information, it will be added to the Hilltowns Genealogy. Eventually the information from deeds, military, tax, and town records will also be used to assure the completeness.

It took many yrars  of work, untold hours, hundreads of sources, and the help of a great many family researchers to to create-the genealogy. Sources are found by clicking on the reeeec tangle to the right of each name.

Kathleen Putzig is now the Hilltons geneogist for this site. To add new individuals or correct information that is in the Hilltowns Family  Genealogy, please contact Kathleen at The Genealogy is updated on a continual basis; the results will be posted on-line on more or less then a monthly basis.

While living people are in the genealogy they are not shownon th Internet over concern someone would use the information for something other than genealogy.
