While the Society has neither the facilities nor personnel to answer queries, they encourage members and non members alike to send queries to be published in their bimonthly newsletter, The Informer at no cost. Send your queries to Lis Couch, query editor or to Jerry Davis
The queries are subject to editing, and will be printed as room is available. Only those mentioning Jefferson County, NY or a location within the county can be usedPlease make sure that your correct snail mail address is in the query and that you state that the query is to be printed in The Informer. The Informer reaches an audience which is largely not on the internet, and so provides another group to help you with your research.
To join JCNYGS and receive The Informer, a 24-page publication dedicated to Jefferson County New York genealogy, contact the address above. Dues are $15 per year for a basic membership, $20 per couples and families. Each issue contains news of the society, and articles of interest to family historians.
MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS!
It helps us maintain timely mailings if you also indicate summer and winter addresses, and the time for us to change from one to the other.

Our constitution states, in part, that one of the purposes of this society is to "gather, preserve, display and make available for study genealogy information, manuscripts, papers...relating to the...genealogy of Jefferson County." The committee is now organized to receive any family history or genealogy you may wish to deposit. The family history can be in any form, from a simple family group sheet or collection of family group sheets, to a register report, to a full-fledged published book.
The collection will be available to members at meetings, and to the public through the courtesy of the Historical Association of South Jefferson at Adams.
Please send any materials to the above Watertown address, clearly marked "Genealogy Committee". For further information, please contact:Larry Corbett, corresponding secretary, putting "Genealogy Committee" in the subject heading.
