Hi, I was wondering if you got my message regarding my 4 editions of Ulster County. I would like to donate them if you are interested.

What can you tell me about "Dolsontown?" Is it named after Asa Dolson, my great, great great grandfather Dr. John T. Jansen's father-in-law?
Anyone recognize this sketch of a mural possibly in Kingston, NY area?
I discovered this tucked in a book I purchased from the Harry H. Honhorst collection.
On another page was this photograph, saying the photographer was from Rondout, NY, and dated 12/31/1896. Any idea where this is?
I am our family genealogist and I have an original newspaper from Ulster County, New York dated Jan. 4, 1800 announcing the death of General George Washington. Due to the folds it is intact in 4 separate parts of the page. It has been stored in an old Archer family bible all these years. Does anyone know what it would be worth? What would you do with it?

If anyone here is interested in tracking the movements of Early American glassblowers (and other glassworkers), take a look at my project spreadsheet at https://sites.google.com/site/robinson1857/home/daniel-robinson
If you would like to contribute any information, please contact me. The more glass workers we can identify and confirm, the easier it will be to zone in on the communities of glass workers that lived near/on company grounds (Sand Lake, Woodstock, Guilderland, Utica, Redford, etc.)
