We are happy to offer our first items of genealogy and local history from Saratoga County, NY, and we plan to offer additional items of historical interest soon.


Now Available for Download


The Saratoga County chapter in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848).  Coverage of this county, particularly its history, is perhaps the strongest coverage of any upstate counties in this book.  It's also among the longest.  We think that it is essential to any study of the county or its inhabitants.  In addition to the nine pages specifically about this county, we also include the section on land grants and patents in New York State.   9++ pages, PDF format, download now for $3.00.
