Baptisms - Births - Deaths - Marriages - Military Service

Jefferson, Lewis, and St Lawrence Counties of Northern New York

This collection records information regarding the births, baptisms, deaths, marriages, and military service of individuals. While the bulk of the information is extracted from newspapers, information is also gleaned from funeral home records, church records, etc. Rather than keeping separate collections for each source, such as the Hoyt Funeral Home, we treat all of this as individual related. Ideally if we have both a published obituary and a listing in a funeral home records, you should find only one listing for the individual with all relevant sources shown for that individual.

As we are transition from the original databases to the new collections, both the old format and the new combined collections are still available. The new collections provide significantly more detail than we were able to provide previously. Under the new format all of the relevant information is now online. For example not only is the date and place of the event shown, but also any relatives that were listed in the source as well as the cite for the original source.

Individual Collection Notes

Most of the entries in this collection pertain to individuals in the three counties (Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence) of Northern New York; however, it does contain any individuals that are reported in those sources that we have available to us regardless of where they lived. Typically those individuals residing outside the tri-county area have some tie to Northern New York.

We don't always have copies of the original source, however we can usually direct you to the appropriate organization where copies of the source material can be obtained.
