   It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1688 birth entry for Jonathan Luice [Lewis] (1688-1764) in the Huntington, New York town records:

The birth entry is the last entry on the page:

The transcription of this record is::

Jonathan Luice sonn of Jonathan Luice was borne y'e first day of may in y'e yeer of our Lord 1688.

The source citation for this record is:
