Elected Trustee, The Leisler Institute

I am very pleased to have been elected and to assume the post as a trustee of   The Leisler Institute, whose mission is to preserve the records of and promote the study of the early period of New York history between the period of the English takeover of New Netherland in 1664 and the American Revolution. The nonprofit research and study center, devoted to Colonial New York under English rule as well as the permanent home of the Papers of the Jacob Leisler Project, serves scholars and students of this important 99 year period in our country's history. The Institute is located in Hudson, New York. I am a direct descendent of Jacob Leisler (8x granddaughter) through his daughter, Hester. https://jacobleislerinstitute.org/
