History of Ontario County New York

The second volume of the work, The History of Ontario County New York, and Its People, is a volume of genealogical and family history. In it are chronicles of the people who have made Ontario County what it is. These records are presented in a series of independent narratives relating to lineal family heads, and the most conspicuous representatives down to the 20th century, giving it a distinct personal interest.

In every case the narrative has been submitted to the immediate subject or to his proper representative for correction and revision. If in any case the matter is incomplete or faulty. it is ascribable to the paucity of data. many families being unable to supply exact information at some point in their ancestral line. It is believed the work will prove a substantial addition to the mass of material relating to people of the region under consideration, and that without it much valuable information would be irretrievably lost, owing to the passing away of many custodians of family records and disappearance of material which has been utilized in the preparation of this work.

The first installment of this series includes over 900+ biographies, many of them dealing with not only influential people in Ontario County, New York, but also for the world. A future installment will contain the narrative genealogies of the families, which will in part include the biographies already listed, but further expand on how each one in the family relates to the other.
