Who We Are


Projects

Early Ulster County and Area Baptism Project This project is our attempt to list all the Davis marriages and baptisms that were recorded in Ulster County and area Reformed Dutch Churches prior to 1850. Where families moved out of the area we've included baptisms from further afield.

Early Montgomery County and Area Baptism Project While researching Davis families that removed from the Marbletown area of Ulster County, to the Montgomery County area, we put together this list of baptisms from the Reformed Dutch Churches there, prior to 1850.

Early Albany County and Area Baptism Project While researching the Christopher "Kit" Davis family in the Albany County area, we put together this list of baptisms from the Reformed Dutch Churches there, prior to 1850.

Davis Obituary Project This project is a list of Davis obituaries and/or death notices that have appeared in Ulster County and surrounding area newspapers.

Davis Marriage Project This project focuses on Davis marriage announcements in Ulster County and surrounding area newspapers. The following marriages are listed alphabetically by first name.

Ulster County Revolutionary War Documents Project This project is a list of the records of Davises who served in Ulster County regiments during the Revolutionary War.
