Thank you for visiting The Albro Genealogy Pages. The reason for this site is to be a collection of information about the Western New York and other Albro's.
Check out the new Rhode Island Marriages , Deaths and Births Pages.
After several years we find that we have become almost the only entirely Free Albro site, so with that in mind, we will be putting information about other Albro families on the site. (Any donations of information or other resources are very welcome.)
Our own, Western New York Albro family had no apparent ties to the other Albros in the area. There are other Albros, in Busti, Ny., around Cortland and Syracuse, and near Ellisburg, Ny. Now with the advent of DNA testing, we find the Albro families from the Ellisburg, NY. area with the same names (Oliver, Oscar, etc.) are in fact ours. There was an Oscar Albro who died in a Syracuse hospital June 8, 1918. His body was identified by his brother, who was from Ellisburg. Our DNA trail links to his sisters, Olive Cordelia Albro and Elnora Albro and a brother, Willard Albro. We are 99% sure this is our Oscar.
The connection to the Busti Albros has been very elusive. It seems to be back in RI. with the first couple generations of Albro. Daniel Albro was possibly born in RI. around 1788.
On the Rowe side of the family, we are still searching for the death and burial place of Legrand Rowe.
In September (2014) we spent a week camped south of Jamestown, NY. about one mile from the PA. line. While we were there we did some Genealogy research in Warren, and Kellettville, PA. I have made a page dedicated to the information we gleaned from the Kellettville trip.
We are working on the ALBRO family tree as it pertains to these locations and ancestors. We're also researching the following surnames; COBBE, LAFFERTY, ROWE, MONTGOMERY, EAKIN, THOMPSON, STONE, BURROWS, SIMPSON, HERPST, THOMAS, WEAVER and ADAMS in the PA, MD, MICHIGAN, NY, and OH, areas.
We are also researching Doxey, White, Beverley and related families.
We would like to thank the many generous patriarchs of our family. Without whose help and firsthand information, this site would not be possible. Many of the pictures here are irreplaceable, and a very special thanks goes out to those who let us borrow them long enough to have copies made.
Please, browse these pages and if you come across a familiar name, someone in your tree, let us know. Maybe we can help each other.
We have some pictures of unknown people in our collection. They can be found on the Unknowns photo page. We sure would like to be able to put a name to the faces. Can you help?
Several years ago, I was the webmaster for the Florida Trails to the Past website.
I wrote a short article about How to Survive in Florida in 8 easy lessons.
Recently, there has been some interest in it, so here it is for your amusement/Information. How to Survive in Florida
