This page is part of the site located at There is no charge to access this site's pages. If you have arrived here from somewhere else, such as a pay site, and are trapped in a frame, click here to break free of the frame.


All items here were contributed via email or snail mail by your fellow researchers and historians. We're the first to acknowledge gaps and areas that need improvement and would appreciate donations from site visitors who have resources at home to share with other researchers. We especially need records from your family Bible and church lists.

In the meantime, if a resource you need/ are interested in/ have heard about isn't listed below, please contact directly the experts - the Montgomery Department of History and Archives - about existence/ availability/ who to contact. Their address and phone number are listed on the historical societies page. The site coordinator and assistant coordinators aren't county residents or historians, and are unable to assist you in any way with your personal research.

Other sites that have online records are listed on our links page.

IMPORTANT: There are quite a few published Mohawk Valley church records that we can't put on GenWeb sites as the transcribers won't give us permission to post the information for free to the online public or to do lookups. Some of these resources have been made available to online subscription sites that you pay a fee to join. Published vital resources include many of the important early Montgomery County church records that researchers ask for. Books and journals containing records are available for sale on commercial genealogical publications sites. Please use a search engine to find these sites.
