- A PARTIAL LIST (1642-1835)
Compiled by Graham Louer 
Webpage and editing by Cliff Lamere    Jul 2001
  This list of early Albany Co. churches was made for Graham's personal use and
  is not complete.  Nevertheless, it should be useful to many people.  Names
  of churches sometimes changed, so you may know the church by a different
  name.  More recent names are given below in square brackets [ ].
  The names used herein are not official names.  An official name might be
  "Dutch Protestant Reformed Church of Village-name".  In common usage
  and on this webpage it might simply be referred to as "Village-name 
  The columns represent 1) the date of formation of the church as best 
  as could be determined, 2) the name of the church, 3) and the town(ship) 
  or city of its location in the county.  Albany, Watervliet and Cohoes 
  are the only cities in the county.  The third column sometimes consists
  of the name of a village or hamlet, followed by the name of the town in
  which it is located.  Watervliet was once a huge town, but now the name
  applies only to the city.  Both usages can be seen in the list below.
