Hello All . . .
Following is the introductory information on the (2MB) Word Document file
that I just uploaded that was submitted by Linda Ogborn. Look for it on the
Vitals page at: http://www.dcnyhistory.org/vital.html
"John Raitt, former Delaware County Historian, many years ago, extracted
this information from the Delaware Gazette for the years 1819-1900. He gave
me a copy so that I could index it, which index is on the Delaware County
History Site. I am retyping his notes and submitting them to the Delaware
County Site for the use of this generation and future generations so that
they might 'find' their lost ancestors. Mr. Raitt spent many long hours
collecting and preserving the history of our County. May he long be
remembered for his dedication to the people of the past and the present and
for the preserving these facts for the future residents."
The file uploaded is the first part of the Deaths and Marriages from Mr.
Raitt's records from 1819-1836.
NOTE: This is the first time I have ever put a Word document on the website.
I usually convert them to pdf files, but had trouble doing so this time. If
anyone out there can convert this to a pdf, let me know. Thanks! and thanks
to Linda for the hours and hours of work she is putting into this project.
