"Dear Mr. Spada, On behalf of the Kingston School District I would like to thank you for the support that we have received from the Ulster County Record Management Archives Program…..
A group of teachers has been working with Mr. Gray and Ms. Hancock in trying to utilize documents from the Ulster County Records Management Archives. We hope to select documents pertaining to thematic areas and formulating activities and lessons that will relate to New York State Social Studies Standards based on the use of these documents. The social studies committee that I serve on asked that I thank you, Mr. Gray and Ms. Hancock for all the support and time that has been given to our teachers….. I am looking forward to continuing our working relationship and appreciate the fact that our teachers and students can benefit from such a valuable local resources."

"Dear Ms. Beecroft, It was a pleasure to do genealogy research at your records center two weeks ago. My daughter Gwen Becker, and I were very impressed with your set up. We have been in many states and county offices and I wish they could all manage their records as you do in Kingston. Ken Gray could not have been more helpful in aiding us with our research. He understood what we were looking for and could zero right in on the needed materials. We know he will advise us if anything turns up that we can use."
