    The Starr Library joined with the Consortium of Rhinebeck History to create a space for researchers of genealogies and general local history. The room is open Tuesday and Thursday from 10 o’clock to 3 o’clock or Saturdays by appointment. It houses a large collection of church and cemetery records, abstracts of Ulster and Dutchess County wills, newspaper marriage and death information and notebooks compiled by respected historians and genealogists, family genealogies on CDs, the Rhinebck Gazette (1842 -1990), state and federal censuses, and rare documents of local and National interest on microfilm.
