GENERAL and SOCIAL HISTORY
All items in this section were contributed via email or snail mail by your fellow researchers and historians. Providing our site visitors with general county history has always been our strong point. We've posted articles from classic books and journals that should be expected on a GenWeb county site. Montgomery County is part of a region of early upstate settlement, as well as being counties that neighboring counties developed from. And so, other important resources pertaining to our area can be found on the Otsego, Schoharie, Fulton and Oneida County GenWeb sites. If you enjoy reading about the general history of theMohawk Valley, we encourage you to visit our neighbors on a regular basis to check out what they're posting.
If a resource you need/ are interested in/ have heard about isn't listed below or on the above-mentioned sites, please contact directly the experts - the Montgomery Department of History and Archives - or ask your local librarians about interlibrary loan.
Articles pertaining to the history of specific towns are located in each town's section. Please refer to our table of towns on the cover page.
Some of the books mentioned have been reprinted and are available for sale through some of the vendors listed in
our commercial books section.
