When I'm not delving into historical research, I'm planning a character's demise.

W is for WYOMING County Historian's Office

Wyoming County Historian's Office
This is where I work as Assistant County Historian. We do genealogy requests, track down the history of abandoned cemeteries or an old building. We even found descendents to pass some silverware along to. You just never know what we will be asked to do.

The office of county historian has been around since 1947 collecting information on the county's history. We are open Monday through Friday 8-noon and 1-3:30 at 26 Linwood Avenue in Warsaw, NY 14569. All those file drawers on the right contain family files. We also have atlases, census records, copies of military pension records, cemetery records... well lots of stuff. Come visit sometime! Oh yes! We also produce a quarterly publication called Historical Wyoming, also since 1947 (except a few years in the 70s till they found another printer.) A subscription is only $10 a year for 4 issues of 28 pages, and no ads (send to address above). Click here for a free PDF issue.

Stay tuned for more history tidbits throughout the month of April!

  3. Stopping by for the A-Z Challenge Road Trip. Thanks for sharing your story as I never have seen what goes into record keeping for family history before. It must be satisfying to be able to help people find the information they are looking for.

Waiting for Harvey
