NYSCOGO TO HOST SPRING MEETING IN ROCHESTER NY
Please come join us and discuss future possibilities for
NYSCOGO (projects, mission, statewide events, etc.) - you
need not be a member to attend.
The Monroe County Central Library in Rochester NY will be
the site of the upcoming spring meeting. Mark your calendars
for Saturday April 30. The library is located at 115 South
Avenue, Rochester NY
The business meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. followed by a
roundtable discussion led by NYSCOGO co-founder Jack Ericson
about the War of 1812 and the ways in which local
organizations will commemorate and pay tribute to the local
impact it had. Delegates whose groups have resources and
publications pertaining to this period are encouraged to
bring materials with them. After the discussion Larry
Naukam, Coordinator of Historical Resources will give us a
tour of their resources.
The library's research collection includes comprehensive
collections pertaining to upstate families. The family
history section contains genealogies of New York State
families, church and cemetery records, newspaper indexes,
and basic genealogical works. In the microform area are
census records (1790-1930), newspapers, and directories.
Nineteenth century atlases, county histories, and
biographical reviews are found in the Local History Room.
Genealogists should not forget to check Special Collections
to see if there are manuscripts pertaining to the places
where their families lived. Rundel also has the New York
State Vital Records Index.
Lunch will be on our own in a private room set aside for us
at the Dinosaur Barbecue restaurant located at 99 Court Street.
