Index for my Cornelia Bresee search

I can't keep track of all of my posts about my online search for Cornelia Bresee's ancestors - so I thought I would index all of them in a post and add to the list as I add more. At the end, the list will be complete and it will help me (and perhaps others) follow the research trail. Hopefully, my trials and successes will help other researchers find records to aid their search.

For background information - I am trying to identify the parents of Cornelia Bresee (born 5 December 1780 in New York), wife of James Bell. They were married about 1797 in Schodack, Rensselaer County, New York according to records held by family members.They resided in Henderson township, Jefferson County, New York from about 1810 to their deaths in 1839/40. They are ancestors of mine.
