Baptisms in Gravesend, New York Church Records 1789-1794

The following is a transcription by Peter Divine, July 2001, from LDS Microfilm #1016877, Item #2. This is a microfilm of a handwritten transcript (p. 129-195) in possession of the Holland Society of New York, New York City. The transcription of original records was done by Dingman Versteeg into 2 ledger books which are items 1 & 2 on the microfilm. Only the front-side of each leaf was used (only the odd-numbered pages). The first book contains most of the records of the Dutch Reformed Church (Tarrytown, New York). The second book consists of the remainder of the Tarrytown records (pages 1-127) followed by the Gravesend records (pages 129-195). The Gravesend records are for baptisms, 1715-1720, 1743-1750, 1762-1805; members, 1763-1774, 1783-1805; elders and deacons, 1763-1805. Gravesend, Kings County, New York, is now a part of the Borough of Brooklyn in the city of New York.

Notes:

1. "do" means "ditto", used in place of re-writing the surname of the previously mentioned individual.
2. Notes and question marks in brackets [?] were inserted by Peter Divine in places where the microfilm was damaged or the handwriting of Dingman Versteeg was unreadable.
3. All other notes and question marks, including those in parenthese (), were inserted by Dingman Versteeg.
4. I did not transcribe the lists of elders and deacons (pages 129-137).

Churchbook of the Reformed Dutch Church of J. Christ gathered at Gravesend Containing election and ordination of Consistories, names of the baptized, members, and marriages.*

*No record of marriages could be found in the register

Records are the format: Child, Date, Parent, Parent, Witness, Witness, Witness
