addition, we have documents relating to the creation and early growth of our
county, particularly regarding the Phelps and Gorham Purchase. We have a
microfilmed copy of the original Oliver Phelps ledger containing detailed
transactions and maps of the Phelps and Gorham Purchase which opened Western
New York State to settlement in 1788.
We are continually updating our
indexes, particularly our surname files and newspaper lists of deaths and
marriages post -1875.
