DIRECTORY OF THE TOWN OF AMSTERDAM

1869 - 1870

Surnames A - I




The Hamilton Child Company of Syracuse, New York produced directories of New York counties for 1869. These directories are useful in conjunction with the 1870 US census, and are available at many New York State libraries and historical societies either in print or on microfilm. In producing these directories, a few residents may have been missed. Absence of a family or person does not always mean that they didn't live there. In transcribing this material we have kept the original spelling and punctuation.

IMPORTANT: For all Hamilton Child county directory listings, the locations in parentheses are the post offices where residents received their mail. In some cases, although a person resided in a particular township or settlement, their post office may have been in another township or county.

The site coordinators have no further information on individuals or families listed in the Hamilton Child directories. If you spot your ancestor in our directory listings, please contact directly the appropriate Montgomery County historical groups and libraries for further assistance.
