St. Lawrence County chapter from French's Gazetteer
of the State of New York (1860).
The north country of New York State is not a
particularly popular topic today, and we are pleased to help bring that
region the attention it deserves. We intend to provide additional
historical and genealogical material from the area as downloads in the
future; how quickly they appear depends to some extent on how popular this
offering is. 14+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.75.
St. Lawrence County from Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of
the State of New York (1848)
dozen years before French's Gazetteer, Mather and Brockett prepared
and published their Geographical History. Much clearly changed
in those dozen years, and this article is helpful in understanding the
changes. 5++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.00.
History of the City of Ogdensburg, by Rt. Rev. P.S. Garand, D. D., V. G.
(1927) 449 pages of well-researched,
well-written history of the
only city in St. Lawrence County, going back to exploration and missionary
activity in the area in colonial times. We purchased this volume only
recently, and at this point it is the only major St. Lawrence County item we own.
We would like to ascertain if visitors to our website think we should pay
more attention to this area. Please let us know!
Unfortunately, we're not in
a position to re-publish this item at the present time due to copyright
limitations – the book was copyrighted in 1927, and our attorney advises us
that this copyright is still in effect (until Congress changes the 1923
date, before which everything is in the public domain now)(regrettably, this
date does not advance as the years pass; evidently its establishment was
initiated by the Walt Disney interests to protect their ownership of the
Mickey Mouse character “forever”).
