Dear Hazel, I am writing you to let you know that my 8th great grndfather was Sylvester Baldwin of Aston, Clinton, Bckinghamshire, England and was born in 1600. His father was also Sylvester, born in Bukinghamshire, as well, in 1560. My name is Ruth Baldwin & I live in New York City. My family immigrated to the U.S. in the 1600's and resided in Stonington,CT.They stayed in Connecticut for several generations and then landed in Brooklyn during the 1800's. How would we be related? I would love to obtain copies of the books you mentioned in your posting & I would certainly love to hear from a relative!
