Sullivan County, NY History

Several years ago, we re-published a real classic,

Sullivan County, New York

Since then, several free downloads of that volume have become available.  We we could see that there wasn't much point of keeping the CD-ROM in our catalog, and that it might be a disservice to our customers to ask them to pay for something that they could have had for free elsewhere.  Hence, we discontinued the CD-ROM.  (If you would like to find a free version -- and Quinlan is absolutely THE go-to source on early Sullivan County -- here's a good place to download it for free.)

There is one big problem with Quinlan's History.  It has no index.  Of course, creating indexes was as difficult and time-consuming back when Quinlan wrote his history as it is today, so we cannot fault him for omitting it  However, its absence is a lasting defect.  We decided that we could add value, so we put everything else aside and indexed it ourselves.

That's right!  We at Between the Lakes Group did the indexing job that the author skipped, and you can download our index here in PDF format  for $2.50.

HOWEVER, we didn't stop there.

When we used Quinlan, we discovered that it was difficult to correlate what was going on in one township with what was happening in other townships and the larger world outside.  To help deal with this, we prepared a timeline from Quinlan.  We've included it, and we hope you find it as useful as we have.

And, sometimes, it's nice to have some pictures to look at when you're reading about an area.  While there are very few if any Sullivan County photos available of a time before Quinlan wrote his book (circa 1872) and rather few for the next few years.  So we did throw in a few postcards from the turn of the century, just for fun.  We hope you enjoy them!

So, here's the package deal:  get (1) the full text of Quinlan, with appendix, advertisements, etc., AND (2) our complete index, AND (3) the timeline, AND (4) the pictures, all for $5.00 -- and you can download it in PDF format right now!
