-Genealogy Research at OBHS-

The records of the OBHS are used more often for genealoical study than any other activity.  Volunteers of the Society update the files weekly through local recent newspaper clippings, old newspaper clippings, scrap books, and photographs.  Scrap books are not kept intact, but are broken up and useful items placed in the family records. The Society also has a collection of local County histories; maps; published and non published histories; and fictional and non fictional works that might be of relavence to local history.  The Society also has a collection of the local newspaper dating back to the late 1800's and up through the 1960's.  The archives also contain files on the local history of Brutus, Weedsport and other northern Cayuga towns, as well as railroads, canals, trolleys, roads, etc. The Historian will respond to requests for information that might be contained in the OBHS files.  She will also make recommendations as to where the searcher might check beyond the borders of Brutus.  The Historian asks for a $10.00 per hour donation charge for any research.  The records available at the OBHS are:
