We are sorry to report the passing of longtime CGS member Dorothy Ann Koenig of Berkeley. Dorothy was an expert in the genealogy of colonial New York. She published the quarterly New Amsterdam Connections from 1996-2006, and generously donated many books on early New York to the CGS library. She was a Bay Area native, a retired UC Berkeley reference librarian, a former nun who lived 9 years in Tanzania,  a polyglot, and a lifelong learner. Her obituary, which details more of Dorothy’s remarkable life, can be read here.

A memorial service is planned for June 16 at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Albany.
