There are numerous ties between the Fonda and Lansing families… having followed very similar paths from Holland to Albany and beyond.   There is a new book published about the Lansing family entitled, “The Lansing Family Journey” which “begins with Henry Hudson’s journey to New Netherland and tracks the Dutch Lansing family as it spread out from Albany, New York. There are over 6,000 individuals referenced and 1,000 families tracked. It is a five-volume set of books including an index for easy searching.” The book was written by Bill Lansing and can be obtained from www.xlibris.com/bookstore.

According to my records, there are no less than 18 marriages between Fonda’s and Lansing’s between 1700 and today (listed below).  Many of these marriages are documented in the “The Dutch Settlers Society of Albany Yearbook: The Fonda Family“, McConville, Howard A.; Albany, NY; 48:17-20 (1981), 49:28-36 (1984) which can be downloaded here.  Several of these individuals are also buried in the recently restored Fonda-Lansing Cemetery located on Rt. 9 in Colonie, which has been highlighted previously on this blog.

Most of these weddings were done in the Dutch Reformed Churches in Albany County.
