Broome County Rescued Documents List

Often times, valuable genealogy documents end up for sale in commercial venues. A few of us have started to "rescue" these documents and post them to the internet. Entries vary in detail from just listings of the items to complete transcripts to entire boxes of memorabilia.

This rescue effort has already proven effective. At the end of Jan, 2001, John Doyle contacted me about some records he had purchased. The names sounded familiar to me, and on checking, I found the records were for the 2nd great grandparents of Debbie Barnes, a frequent submitter to the site. Debbie should be receiving the package soon and will share the details with us.

The list below are items that have been rounded up by myself or by others. Submitters have no other information on these people; sometimes, in the case of pictures, they can't even identify all the people in the picture. All links are to pictures and/or transcripts of the data.
