Departments - Genealogy Department

dna and genealogyDid you know that the SCHS Genealogy Department has an extensive obituary file?  I have been involved with catching up with the backlog of obituaries that have been in our archives. The obituaries are placed on index cards and cross-referenced by spouse and parents so each obituary takes at least four cards. Now I have many, many cards to be filed and would welcome any volunteers willing to give a few hours time filing them. The only genealogy experience needed is a knowledge of the alphabet. If interested, you may contact me at the museum 845-434-8044 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I am looking forward to meeting you.

Departments - Genealogy Department

dna and genealogyAs the genalogy replacement for Barbara Viele at the Sullivan County Historical Society,  I  would like to make contributions to the SCHS webpage with information of what we have and do in the Genealogy Department. If on the homepage you click on "Departments" at the top of the page and select "Genealogy."  you will in the near future see my postings.

Also at the top of the homepage is a heading labeled "Forms" where a genealogy search request form can be downloaded. Fees for searches are on the form.

I will also give a quick response by email if it doesn't require an extensive search.
