Hi Jacqueline and other Orleans County List Members,
The Central Library in Rochester, Monroe County, New York has a set of
microfiche that list Birth, Marriage and Death Indexes for New York State
(outside of New York City). The indexes do NOT include births and deaths in
Albany, Buffalo and Yonkers prior to 1914, or marriages in those cities
prior to 1908. (Contact the local registrar of vital statistics in those
cities for information about earlier records.)
NY State began keeping vital records of deaths
in June 1880, births and marriages in 1881, although not all towns started
keeping these records until closer to the turn of the century. The indexes
only show the person's name, date of the event, place of the event and a
reference number. Because of privacy restrictions, only births older than 75
years and marriages and deaths older than 50 years are open for research.
Learning the place of the event should lead you to the proper Town Clerk to
request a copy of the certificate.
I have occassionally been going into the Central Library in Rochester
which is about an hours' drive from my home. I probably will not be going
into Rochester for a couple of months, but, as time and weather permits, I
will be willing to look up your ancestors in these NY Indexes for you.
However, to accomodate as many persons as possible, please limit your
request to a maximum of 4 names. After receiving the results of my search,
you may continue submitting another 4 names.
Please provide me with the following:
1. - Full Name: If Marriages- send names of both bride and groom, if
2. -Year: The year the event took place (include actual, or
suspected, date if available, to help me identify the correct persons).
3. - Event: Specify which event you are looking for.
4. - Soundex: Include soundex for your name, if possible. Otherwise, I
can look them up when needed. Indexes for certain years are arranged by
5. - Place: Include the place you SUSPECT the event took place, if
known, to help me identify the correct persons).
Please remember: the event MUST have taken place in New York State.
Births must be between 1881 and about 1927.
Marriages and deaths must be between 1880/1881 and about 1952.
If you believe you know the correct year but are not positive, I will try to
do a 3 yr. search, time permitting. They will be done last, to permit me to
fill as many other
requests as possible.
To avoid your e-mail being mistaken for spam (junk) mail, please use "NYS
Index Request" in your subject line.

Subject: [QC-ETANGLO] Post 1901 Census -- 1906 Census records released
"Genealogists, historians, and researchers across the country won a
major victory today as Industry Minister Allan Rock announced the
immediate release of the nominal records from the 1906 census. Ontario
Senator Lorna Milne (Liberal -- Peel Region) welcomed the news."
So reads the opening paragraph of a News Release issued today, 24
January 2003, by Senator Lorna Milne.
The full text of Senator Milne's News Release, and other pertinent News
Releases, can be found on the Post 1901 Census Project website at
The announced release of the 1906 Special Census of the Western
Provinces is indeed a major victory for genealogists and historians who
have been actively campaigning for this for the past five years. It is
felt that release of the 1906 Census will lead the way for the eventual
release of the 1911 and subsequent Censuses of Canada.
We are grateful to Industry Minister Allan Rock for recognizing what is
right and proper, and doing what legally should have been done in 1998.
We are pleased that the Minister has released the 1906 records in
full, and without restrictions, on the same basis as 1901 and earlier
records have been available.
We are grateful also to MP Murray Calder, and especially to Senator
Lorna Milne for the effort they have put in for us to reach this point
in our campaign.
We have won a major battle, but the war is not yet over. We have yet to
deal with expected legislation that must ensure the orderly and
continued release of Historic Census records, after the legislated
period of closure. We expect that legislation to be brought down
shortly after Parliament resumes sitting at the end of January. We
trust Minister Rock, in drafting the legislation, to remember that what
we seek is the same unrestricted access to records after, now 1906, that
is currently available for records up to then.

These are the gggrandparents that I am researching.
Sereno Stone born Feb 1813, died November 23, 1889 in the town of Holley NY. He is buried at Hillside cemetery.
Lura E. Phillips Stone was born October 27, 1817 and died October 5, 1903, she is also buried at Hillside cemetery.
The place of Lura's death is a problem. In the 1900 census she was living with her son in law
Jeremiah West along with her daughter Mary, in the twp of Kendall.
Any help would be appreciated. I have also searched for Lura E. Phillips parents for a long time. Everything I find says she was born in NY and yet haven't found parents with a daughter by this name nor brothers or sisters.........my hope would be that there would be some small thing on her death certificate that would give me another place to look.
Good morning list,
I have gggrandparents buried in the Hillside cemetery. My gggrandfather died Nove 23, 1889, his wife died October 5, 1903. My question to the list is it at all possible to get a death certificate as early as 1889 or 1903. If so, where would I write and how much would each certificate be?
I am searching for information about my great-grandfather John G. Dickson. He was born about 1834 in Rochester, NY. His parents were Samuel and Agnes Huttinson Dickson. The apparently moved to Orleans County and Agnes and several of John's siblings are buried there.
My great-grandmother, Margaret Tabor Dickson, was his second wife. I am interested in finding out about his first wife and any children there. Also where and when he died. I believe it was after 1913.
Greetings! Still looking for parentage of Anna (?) GREENMAN (1798, VT-1870,
MI). Anna married Benjamin GREENMAN (1796, NY - 1854, MI) son of William B.
& (??) GREENMAN.
Children of Benjamin & Anna: Cynthia, married Asahel Rowe DANIELS; Charles,
married Sarah Ann WELLS, Mercy A., married Gideon HOUSEMAN; Betsy, married
Myron A. SHAY.
Mercy A. (GREENMAN) HOUSEMAN (31 May 1835, Yates Twp., Orleans, NY - 30 Mar
1900, bur. Lynhaven Cem., Orleans Co., NY) wife of Gideon HOUSEMAN.
Could someone please check Mercy's death record and see if parents are
listed? Or any other information about the above family will be greatly
appreciated. I have this large portrait, in a bubble rounded glass frame, of
Anna (?) GREENMAN. I sure would like to give her a last name. :~}
Thank you for your time.
Something really great has just been added to our site. We now have a
marriage section with over 3,000 marriages listed. Feel free to send us any
Orleans county marriages you would like to have listed and we will add them.
Special thanks goes to Marge Schultz and Mary Stack for their research
on this project and to Stu VanOrden for his work getting it converted to
for the work he is doing right now in creating a marriage index which
Hope you find this new section helpful in your research.

Would anyone know the address or any information regarding Merrill's Mortuary
or Dutton Nursing Home. I know these places probably do not exist now, but
they did exist in 1945. Also, does anyone have any information about a
tailor shop called Marcus Swartz on East Bank Street? My aunt Louise Wilson
worked there for many years before her death in 1945. Thank you in advance
for your help.
