We are happy to offer our first items of genealogy and local history from Cayuga County, NY, and we plan to offer additional items of historical interest soon.


Now Available for Download


The Cayuga County chapter in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848). Brief, even terse treatment of Cayuga County, but nonetheless a necessary part of the historical record.  We also include the land grants and patents section of this source as background information.  4++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.00.

Cayuga County from Mather & Broackett (1848)


The Cayuga County chapter from French's Gazetteer of the State of New York (1860).

Cayuga County, NY from French's Gazetteer (1860)


Charity in New York State in 1906: Cayuga County.  We are in the process of republishing sections of volume II of the Annual Report of the State Board of Charities for the year 1906.  The material will be of interest to local historians who wish a better picture of charitable institutions in their locale a century ago, to genealogists and family historians interested in the people who administered charity back then as well as how any unfortunates housed in these facilities may have lived, and to those who have questions about the now-politicized "safety net" for the unfortunates in our society back in those years.  This section addresses the public and private charities in Cayuga County in 1906 that were registered with the State Board of Charities. 7++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.50.

Cayuga County was separated from Onondaga County in 1799.  You may also want to consult our Onondaga County page for locations that may have been affected by this transaction.

Cayuga County was subsequently divided to form, first, Seneca County, and then divided again to form (with a portion of Seneca County), Tompkins County.  You may want to visit those county pages for additional information.
