My major interest is in genealogy and family history. All of my known recent ancestors are from New York City. Their immigrant ancestors arrived in this country in the mid- to late 1800's, mostly from Germany, although one came from Ireland and another from England. I am still trying to identify the ancestors of my great-great grandfather, Charles Waldron, who was born in New York City about 1820.
My wife Betty's ancestors are from Chester County, Pennsylvania and from Massachusetts. Her Pennsylvania line starts with John Scott, born about 1706, Thomas Hope, born in 1701 and Joshua Barton, born in 1780. One of her Massachusetts lines starts with Samuel Hill, born about 1732.
In my research I've recorded death certificate numbers extracted from New York City and Brooklyn indexes. Feel free to check out the Birth and Death Indexes for the Waldron surname (and for a few other of my related surnames). Click the Other Indexes tab.
If you see a familiar name please send me an e-mail: -- perhaps we might be distant cousins.
