Chemung County

Chemung County is part of New York's southern tier. It borders Pennsylvania on the south, Steuben county on the west, and Schuyler County on the north. On the east is its mother county, Tioga, from which it was separated in 1836. The first towns were Chemung which name remains as the county, a town and a village, and Newtown, which became Elmira in 1808. Both of these were towns in the mother Tioga County, and became the source of the towns that exist now in Chemung. See the Town Formation page for more detail.


Tri-Counties Site and its Resources

This Chemung County entry page is one of three county level pages that lead to the main site under the umbrella of Tri-Counties Genealogy & History by Joyce M. Tice . It is on the main site that you will find 16,000 pages of resource material. That includes Bible records, cemetery and census records, obituaries and other clippings, transcribed vital records [births, deaths, marriages] and far more than you could ever imagine without going in for your own look at it..

The site can be navigated EASILY from the Current What's New page. Once you reach the New page that the link takes you to, you have to click on the current month - whatever that may be when you do this. There you will find one sidebar arranged alphabetically by subject and another arranged alphabetically by the 80 Towns and Townships that comprise the three counties. Each township page is in itself an entire site with all pages relating to that area linked from it in a standard subject-level structure.

The Current What's New page is also where you will find the PICO search engine that is partitioned so you can search just individual categories such as Bible Records or Obituaries for burials in Chemung County. Or you can search the whole site if you are up for the many hundreds of hits 16,000 pages can give you.

Take your time to learn the efficient structure of the site before you waste time thrashing aimlessly. The path is well lighted if you will follow the aids to guide you.

About Us

Tri-Counties Genealogy & History by Joyce M. Tice was founded in 1996. Its development has been made possible by a large group of ever-willing and enthusiastic history-loving volunteers, both local and distant, who have scoured the court houses and cemeteries and newspapers of the area seeking out every scrap that we can find on our history. They have typed and typed and begged for more. We are grateful every day for all the help that they have sent our way.
