      Hello everyone,

      I've been rather quiet lately due to some health issues. I spent quite a bit of time in September going for medical tests - ultra sounds, CAT scans, blood work, and more blood work. Results of all tests came in last week.

      The doctors have booked me for surgery in early November so I am going to try to catch up with my genealogy websites and blogs this month. But I also have to do quite a bit of cooking to prepare meals for my hospital stay and for the 2 month recovery period afterwards. Hubby is well-intentioned but not a cook. :-)

      I am sure I will feel much better than I have in the last year, once the surgery is over. I just want my readers to know why I might be quiet for awhile, or falling behind in bringing genealogy data online.

      Meantime, I did manage to bring the following New Jersey Church Records online for genealogists to use freely

      Added to Olive Tree Genealogy New Jersey Church Records section are the following Records of the Reformed Dutch Churches of Hackensack and Schraalenburgh, New Jersey

      Membership Lists Hackensack 1695-1769 http://www.olivetreegenealogy.com/usa/nj/Hackensack-Members.shtml

      Membership Lists Schraalenburgh 1797-1801

      Marriages Hackensack 1696 - 1801

      Baptisms Hackensack 1696-1783

      Consistory Records Hackensack 1701 - 1780
