A grassroots volunteer effort to restore the oldest cemetery within the Albany city limits
Hello! Whom has records of burials in this cemetery? I know that several years ago I spent many hours on two different visits looking for my great-great grandmother's grave. The only information I have is that she was buried in the German-Protestant Cemetery in Albany. I think your goal of restoring this beautiful cemetery is most admirable, and wish I still lived locally to help. Thank you!
Hello Pat. I am one of the volunteers working in the cemetery. If you tell me your g-g-grandmother's name, I'll keep my eyes open when I'm there. I'm becoming familiar with a lot of the names. Also, if you haven't already done so, search her name on Findagrave and you may get a photo of the headstone and discover that you walked right past her stone because she's interred with others - happened to me with my g-g-g grandparents in this same cemetery.
Pat,The records were moved to the NY State Library. I have been able to find baptism, marriage and death records of many family members.Tom MyersSee: http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/msscfa/sc23221.htm
Thank you for the update, I'll look into these records.
My paternal relatives (the Gerricks) are buried here. I visit the cemetery from out of state when I can. Last month I was shocked and surprised that someone had professional restored my baby uncle (Henry Gerrick's stone) which a mower had apparently struck. He is buried in the children's section at the bottom of the hill. I have info that can help, although I see that u now know that the State archives now has possession of the records.
