The Livingston Family papers relate to Robert and Alida Livingston and their descendants, important in the social, political and economic history of the Hudson Valley since the mid-Seventeenth Century. The bulk of the materials are dated between 1630 and 1800. They relate to family matters, affairs of New York and Albany County under British Colonial rule and after independence, the trade and commerce of the Hudson Valley (both internal and external), Jacob Leisler's rebellion, privateers such as Captain Kidd, Indian affairs, and the American Revolution.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
