Farmer apparently thought no one cared about the old cemetery. He thought wrong. Claiming the descendant trespassed and filing a lawsuit is telling.
A recently purchased piece of farmland in Enon is at the center of a dispute between neighbors and the new owner.

The names in red  represent lines I've had DNA matches on. I've had a Forgey matches out past  my paper trail. An important statement recently regarding DNA standards and ethics, which was recently drafted, was brought up...

Hi, just by chance, does anyone happen to know what the page number is where Vol II starts in New York, Land Records, 1630-1975 - Ulster Deeds? (ps...it's the letters II, just to avoid confusion.)

It seems like I looked through every single image in the relevent 2 volume collection and never got out of the preceding Volume that it is coupled with... Is Vol. II missing from the online collection? Any insights or hints?

Still searching...;) Thanks.

Ah, I forgot I asked this. I got an answer from the OCGSNY group;

Volume HH is a short one, running to Page 259 on Image 155.  After some wasted pages, Volume II Page 1 is on Image 172 and runs to Page 652 on Image 528.

Thanks for the offer...:)

I have at least one family member buried in this cemetery and I would hate to see it bulldozed under the earth as if he never existed. The nature of the site shows his life was probably hard enough and he and the others shouldn't suffer further indignities. Whenlocal governments believe no one is interested in sych sites any longer, they tend to become parkig lots or some suchthing. Personally I don't share those values. If you are a preservatist, please forward this.
The remaining historical structures at the Eastern Dutchess County Services Center in the Town of Washington shouldn't be demolished.

FamilySearch Blog:  My Ancestor Came to Colonial America as an Indentured Servant.

The gateway to Europe are the indentured servants,” observed Nathan Murphy MA, AG, of FamilySearch International. Murphy gave a talk titled, “My Ancestor Came to Colonial America as an Indentured Servant” during the Thursday morning session of the National Genealogical Society Conference held in Richmond, Virginia. “The point is, indentured servants are the immigrants that help trace family back to the old country and extend the pedigree,” explained Murphy. “Identifying immigrants is the first step to tracing origins.” Following are Murphy’s tips for finding and tracing an indentured servant in your own line, with a focus on English ancestry.

Who Were They?
An indentured servant is someone who agreed to serve as a servant for a given amount of time in America in exchange for free passage to the Americas. According to Murphy’s lecture, 3 out of 4 immigrants to colonial America were indentured servants.

From England, the major ports of departure were London, Bristol and Liverpool, with most going to Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Barbados.

According to Murphy, a study of London records concluded that the top 3 reasons for choosing indentured servitude were: 1) fatherless (no inheritance), 2) friendless (no social contacts to obtain work), and 3) released from prison.

Murphy explained not all were voluntary servants. Some were “Redemptioners.” These were more common amongst German colonists. Redemptioners were people who agreed to pay passage upon arrival (perhaps family in America had already paid). If they couldn’t come up with money, they were sold as indentured servants. Others may have been convicts who were exiled from the home country for crimes.

How Do I Find Genealogical Records About Them?
The following table, based on the one presented by Murphy, explains potential sources of family history information.

I have a question for you. I'd look it up myself, but that wouldn't benefit anyone else, what would be the proper uses of the EMMIGRATION (emig) and IMMIGRATION (immi) tags in one's gedcom file? What dates are applicable to which tag? Thanks.

+June Higgins  You may be more of an expert than you know! I couldn't help myself and decided to look it up anyway, you hit it right on the head!

The gedcomm 5.5 specs gives these;

EMIG (emigration) = An event of leaving one'shomeland with the intent of residing elsewhere.

And;

IMMI (immigration) = An event of entering into a new locality with the intent of residing there.

So, that's exctly it. Departure and arrival. I seem to recall some confusion on my part over those two terms when I first started out. That may have stemmed partly fro looking at others peoples gedcom files wherein they used the two terms interchangeably. Thanks for the answer!
