MONTGOMERY COUNTY NY GENWEB
Genealogy & History
ABOUT US! This deep and detailed site was formerly one half of Herkimer/Montgomery NYGenWeb, a county site of the USGenWeb Project that came on line in September 1996. We are not affiliated with any historical society or library. The depth of our resources after 20+ years is due to the time, effort and caring given by many typing volunteers to help their fellow researchers. Dozens of generous contributors have sent us information, tips and pointers to superb historical resources, and great feedback. Our genealogical offerings are only as good as our visitors' input. If you'd like to contribute some copyright-free resources, volunteer to assist in typing up or coding more material, or are interested in becoming a town editor, please contact the Site Coordinator. Don't let the "paper wrapping" fool you - this is a deep GenWeb site, offering hundreds of files of great articles as well as many photos. Enjoy exploring our free resources, and happy ancestral hunting!

MILITARY HISTORY: our military section is HUGE! And it's taking a while to link it all back into this new site! But we have tons of Revolutionary War, Civil War and other regimental rosters, area Military Honor Rolls, lots of articles of local interest, and well-chosen links to sites of historical military interest.

ASK YOUR COUSINS: books we own, look-ups and special assistance from other researchers.
THE OAK-PANELED LIBRARY: books we don't own but your library may have, including Family History Center books and microfilms, and several links to commercial resources and sites.
LINKS WE LIKE: our large links list contains general research aids, current and historical county links, great military history links, maps, commercial and tourism resources - and some fun stuff. Most of your non-genealogy questions can be answered in this section!
