Family Histories in the Monroe County Histroical Association Collection

The Monroe County Historical Association has an excellent collection of local material, which can be used in their Reference Room. Among the material in their collection are a number of individual family histories, many prepared by members of the families with the help of the Staff of the Historical Association over a period of many years. Persons who are in the process of compiling their own genealogies may wish to go to the Stroud Mansion and refer to some of these. Those in the list which follows appear in our catalog, with the notation that they are in the Historical Association Library.. We have duplicates of a few of them on a shelf in the Local History Room, on the back of the low bookcase in the center of the room, but most of them are available only at the Historical Association and must be used there.
We may perhaps add that it is our hope that when genealogies of local families are completed by people who have used the Local History Room materials in their search, they will be kind enough to those who follow, to donate a copy of their history to the library as well as to the Historical Association, giving a helping hand to those who follow, however distant the relationship may be.

The index can be found in The Local History [ HIST Ref. 929.9 FAM ]
