Baptist Church Records Rescued from the Wrecking Ball!

Important collection of church records salvaged from the wrecker by a RUMSEY researcher rummaging!

Genealogists have a good friend in Tompkins County, New York.
Mary Rumsey sent word that she rescued a cache of Baptist Church records that were tucked away in an attic during some recent demolition for an addition.

In Mary's words: Of course I grabbed them :)

I have; First Baptist Church of West Danby, NY 1894-1928,
West Danby Church Minutes 29 April 1955 to 1 July 1965,
Records of the W. Danby Church 30 Oct 1858 to 1890,
and Minutes 1965 to 1972.

I will do lookups for anyone, anytime, if they send me an email. I work more than full time, so I haven't been able to start transcribing them at all yet. I will do whatever I am able to help.

I also have thousands of RUMSEYs and much of the RUMSEYS genealogist's work for Symon and Robert RUMSEY. (Basically NY and PA) (Willing to share.)

Note: If anyone wants to reach Mary, send me an email and I will forward it to her, rather than publish her email address.
