i do a lot of research north of albany-the counties which border canada. for many of my relatives, while there may have been a church, there was not necessarily a resident priest-not a large enough catholis pop or not enough priests. the priests were itinerant, sometimes crossing state borders, and the canadian border. sometimes when you search the bapt records u will see that the church or religeous marriage took place after the civil one, and that the 1 mos old, 2 yr old and 5 yr old all baptized on the same day-sometimes when the priest was in the area the residents could not get there. i do not know if this is the case in the albany area.
