Our popular "Where the Boys Were" section outgrew its spot on our main page long ago.

A special feature of this section, the Military Roll of Honor. If your ancestor or relative was born, raised or lived in Montgomery County, NY, send us their name, town and the war they served in for inclusion on the Military Honor Roll. Of special interest are Herkimer/Montgomery veterans who moved on and served in other states.
