 Suffolk County from French's Gazetteer


Antiquities of Long Island by Gabriel Furman (1874).  This item is a classic compendium of the colonial history of Long Island (including Suffolk County) -- its Dutch Reformed, Puritan, Anglican religious traditions; its time as a part of Connecticut; dealings with Native Americans; a little genealogy -- it's all here.  While Long Island is a melting pot today, this volume reveals how long the history of cultures meeting and mixing on Long Island has been a way of life.  274 pages, in PDF format, download now for $4.25.
