technical issues our mirror site at www.Hotaling.us is not in
service at this time,
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This site
however will continue to be.
appreciate your understanding and patience...
site is, has been and will always be, dedicated to the sharing
information, completely free of charge, with anyone and
everyone, in an effort to encourage and promote interest in the
history of, not only the Hotaling family, but in this great
country, and the role all of our families have played in its
of the information contained within this site is donated to my
by many different sources, most of which I can not possibly
personally verify its legitimacy. Other sources include message
boards, genealogy websites, library records and others misc.
sources as well. I simply gather information and try to organize
it in an effort to make research easier, yours and mine, so feel
free to share any and all the information within this site, in
any way you like.
of the other sources are individual researchers who have
generously shared their work with me, as well as the NY
Genealogical & Biographical Society, which published an
in-depth article in 1970 on the family, called "Mathys
Coenradtsen Houghtaling of Coxsackie NY and His Descendants",
which is the basis of my work, on which I added to, all of the
rest of my research. Also, a well known article called "Anna's
Diary", which is very informative as well. See our
of Interest page for links to both of these articles in
their entirety, as well as, links to many other fascinating
letters, photographs and such. Our
page offers links to our online searchable "Family
Tree" gedcom file, which is hosted by "Rootsweb.com",
as well as, Militia Muster Rolls, Interment and Census records
and more . We offer a Brief
Family History, Online
Research Tips, as well as a brief history of
Ancestral Line, which includes two Mohawk and one Seneca
Indian's, of whom I am very proud to be a descendant of, as much
if not more so, than my European ancestors.
do not assume any information you find on-line [including
information from this site] as anything more than clues, to help
you find the REAL proof, proper documentation from the
"Source", be it government, church, business or
whatever. Although most info is accurate, there's no way to tell
the difference, so to be on the safe side, treat everything as

"Huftail" Hollow Cemetery Project -
Now called Houghtaling Hollow, this land dates back to the late 1700's or
early 1800's and is the final resting place for many Houghtaling
patriarchs. Here is a collection of photographs of an on-going project to
restore the famous family burial ground in Delaware County, NY.
Rick Hotaling has not only single-handedly taken up this cause, but is
kind enough to record and preserve his work in these photo's and has
agreed to share them with me, so I can share with you. So please help
support his endeavor, and thank him for his work to help preserve our
project was made possible by people like yourself, who have allowed us to
add their "branch" to our family tree. To them, I am deeply
appreciative, and I welcome yours as well, including any documentation,
photographs, as well as, gedcom files or whatever.
Besides the info
that has been donated by others, I have devoted literally thousands of
hours to this site and to the research associated with it, and I share
everything with everybody, completely free of charge, and have no
sponsors, and have NEVER accepted money from any person or organization.
Also, I am
trying to gather info on Hotaling families
that no longer live in New York State,
in an effort to organize and track the family migration from NY.
