Does this Mary Tweedie have any relationship to any of the other
Delaware County Tweedies including James G. Tweedie, b. 20

Hello, I am looking for someone who is researching the FERRIS family who probably arrived in Delaware County as early as 1763. In particular, I am looking for information about Elizabeth Ferris of Kortright whose will was probated january 11, 1825,
Her daughter Fanny Wetmore may have been connected to the Wetmore family who lived in Durham, Greene County about that time.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Neil
Hi-I am new to this list, and have a question that might sound really
stupid. I have an ancestor who is said to have come from Brooklyn,
NY-naturally I assumed NYC. -BUT-I can find nothing at all on him,
and he was born 1896-97.
so, 2 yrs later, I discover that NYC is not the only spot in NY to
claim a Brooklyn. Where would I send for a birth cert., and how much
would it cost? I am also curious about catholic churches, for baptism
cert.s-does anyone have the address' of the area churches?
Finally-his name was PATRICK JOSEPH DUFFY he was born July 4, 1896-97,
to MICHAEL and MARGARET (Garvin/Garven) Duffy-he had a brother, Michael,
and a sister, Mae. He was orphaned, and spent time in an orphanage (any
orphanages in the area?)
until he was taken to Mass., and adopted there.
If this could possibly be the "right" Brooklyn , please
let me know!

I am looking for information on the William Orr family. I have a copy of his death certificate. He was born in 1851 in Scotland. I have found him in the 1880 Census, but I can't find him before or after that. I know he died in Delhi 4/9/1910. I am looking for information on his wife and possibly his parents.

Hello List: See you at Court House in Delhi on July 28th!
In a 1994 publication there was mention of a series of books available from
the New York State Archives and Records Administration. They are guides to
Collections held by historical agencies, archives, libraries, historical
societies and museums for each County of New York. They are not
necessarily complete, I understand.
One volume was published for Delaware County. Does anyone have a copy? Is
it a comprehensive listing? Would it be worth trying to order in your
opinion? It was $6.00 in 1994 - no idea what they want now, or if it is
even available. Would like any info anyone has. Thanks, Averill
Would anyone have access to the 1915 and/or
1920 NY Census for Geneva, NY. I am trying to locate
information about an Edward Delamater and Lillian Drew
who were married in 1913.
