Men at Work - about 1800

This image lets everyone know that a particular page on the People of Colonial Albany Live Here Website is undergoing revision, redevelopment, or restructuring. "Men at Work" - you know!

Because this website is evolving rapidly and on many interdependent fronts, we must move forward with partially perfected features on almost every complex page. The material appearing on a particular "in-progress" page represents a direction we plan to follow with each topic, theme, or character. The size of each "in-progress" icon on a page represents how much more information we might expect to uncover on a particular person or subject!

Please understand that every page represents a good-faith effort on our part to provide the most accurate and sound information on any relevant subject. However, we are not perfect! Every day we correct a number of presentation errors, re-write problem passages, and clean up grammar, usage, punctuations, and spelling mistakes. We are grateful for the correctives and suggestions that we receive every day. We always appreciate hearing from you!

We appreciate your patience. Please check these pages often and let us know what you think.

In the meantime, please consider some of the recently opened pages devoted to the people of colonial Albany and their world!
