JEFFERSON COUNTY VITAL RECORDS 1847-1849

In the years 1847, 1848, and 1849 New York State conducted an experiment in registering births, deaths and marriages for every town in the state. The following year, the landmark every name 1850 census was recorded, and family historians could at last find out the names of family members. Then, for unknown reasons, the idea of registering vital statistics was dropped, not to be used again until about 1880. We do have this three year window with basic information, and the Jefferson County website, through the aid of several people, will attempt to gather and put on the site these valuable records.

THIS MONTH'S FEATURE
South Jefferson Historical Association Family Files

Through the kind offices of Ed Lee and Debbie Quick, we have received the current list of the family files maintained by the Historical Association of South Jefferson. These files are being added to continually, and are current only for the day.

Some cautions about using this list: every surname is listed, but the amount of information available varies widely from folder to folder, from an obituary in one to a complete family history in another. There is no guarantee that the person you are looking for will be included in the folder, even though she has the same unusual surname as the one listed.

Please remember that email is for short messages only. No one is going to type pages of material to send to you. Be prepared to pay copying and mailing costs. South Jeff is supported by donations and maintained largely by volunteers. The staff is small, and they have many demands on their time, so be patient and courteous. As always, virtue brings its own reward!

QUERIES

We have found that the new Jefferson County Query Bulletin Board is not only more timely, it's convenient for our viewers and a great timesaver for us. For the sake of better and quicker service, therefore, we are discontinuing our manually posted queries. From now on, post your queries on the Query bulletin board, and it will appear almost immediately.

How to use the query board is outlined on the query page. A few pointers to keep in mind:

1. The query must mention Jefferson County or a place in the county or it will be deleted.

2. Do not use general queries, such as "send me all your information on the Davis family." Those queries will also be deleted. We need some identifying names. Dates are also important.

3. Specify your query by surname. All other topics should go into the Mailing List.

Please click here Queries to post your query.

Note: Those queries submitted for August 1999 will be posted under the old system.

The above service has been discontinued by Rootsweb


We feel that the new Jefferson County Mailing List has great potential, but only if people use it. Please give it some thoughtful consideration. It's the place to ask others where they found their granddad's birthplace, or where in the world do you ask about school records, or did ggggpapa belong to a grange, and if so, which one? What is a grange, anyway? Why should it be important to a family historian? And maybe, just maybe, someone out there will have a tidbit you should know about, but didn't know enough about it to ask. For Jefferson County mailing list, supported by Rootsweb: click here Mailing List with only the word "subscribe" in the subject and message area
