Does anyone have suggestions on how I could locate any Dutch Reform church records for the Cayuga County, NY area.

I believe this surname could be Dutch background.

Particularly searching for a Jeremiah Vangilder (unknown birth & unknown death) who seem to have lived in the Sempronius, Cayuga County area before 1800. He is listed in the 1800 Census, a mention is made a Vangilder family moved to the Niles, Cayuga Co., NY area about 1792.

My ancestor was Amelia M Raner B 1829 in NY. Her mother was a Hannah Vangilder who married a Joshua Raner. There is a possible Hannah (Vangilder) Raner living in Cayuga Co., NY born about 1800. She named one of her sons Jeremiah Raner.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Debbie Freeman
