Franklin Couch, a Lawyer & Genealogist of Peekskill, NY donated handwritten genealogy
files to the Field Library, Peekskill, NY. These are sheets of legal paper organized in
surname folders. The files are very extensive covering large numbers of families who lived
in Westchester County, NY. The originals are stored in the Colin T. Naylor, Jr. Archives,
but copies are available for public viewing in the library.
The Field Library has an extensive collection of microfilmed newspapers and census records
for the area. In addition, the Local History Collection has a treasure trove of primary
source material including resident directories from 1860 on.
The Field Library Research Librarian will copy requested items for a fee for out-of-state
inquirers. See the fee schedule at:
