Family Related Research

When most of us do genealogy research, our topic is usually our particular family rather than a region. This section was created to facilitate the exchange of family specific resources that may be helpful or interesting to everyone in the community researching ancestors from Warren County.

Elaine Cope was gracious enough to make the first contribution, a collection of notes kept by her Great Grandfather Charles Wilbur Cowles. Charles Wilbur Cowles kept a daily diary of sorts. Some days he just posted the weather, or what he & the family did that day. Other entries mention family & neighbors, people who have died, etc, etc. The notes have not been transcribed, but some of these pages are available as images, allowing us to read them as they were originally written.
