Livingston County, NY history

Livingston County, New York history

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


Now Available for Download


The Livingston County chapter in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848).  Livingston County receives comparatively generous treatment as upstate New York counties go in this 1848 gazetteer.  Six pages (which includes a map) contain considerable information and are certainly important to the historical record.  We also include the chapter on land grants and patents that underlie New York State counties.  6++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.25.
