Putnam County, NY History

Putnam County, New York

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


Now Available for Download


Putnam County in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848).  Putnam County, only 36 years old at the time Mather & Brockett compiled their gazetteer, fared poorly, since only three pages are allocated to it.  Our reaction was that Putnam is a small county, but really!  Nonetheless, this is a part of the historical record and essential for that reason if not for length.  In addition to the three pages specifically about Putnam County, we include the section on land grants and patents in New York State, which affects all the counties.  3++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $1.00.
