The Broome County chapter in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848). The compilers were not consistent in the level of coverage they gave the various counties, and sadly Broome County was one that got short shrift.  Nonetheless, we feel the information contained in these pages is essential. In addition to the three pages on Broome County, we include two more pages on the various patents and land grants that underly the counties. 3++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.00.

Charity in New York State in 1906:  Broome County.  We are in the process of republishing sections of volume II of the Annual Report of the State Board of Charities for the year 1906.  The material will be of interest to local historians who wish a better picture of charitable institutions in their locale a century ago, to genealogists and family historians interested in the people who administered charity back then as well as how any unfortunates housed in these facilities may have lived, and to those who have questions about the now-politicized "safety net" for the unfortunates in our society back in those years.  This section addresses the public and private charities in Broome County in 1906 that were registered with the State Board of Charities. 7++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.00.
