* Please note: This website is not supported by any agency or organization within Schuyler co.,
NY.  The "Schuyler co., NY GenWeb" is part of the NYGenWeb & USGenWeb Projects
(hosted by the Rootsweb server) which are part of a volunteer internet organization for
the free exchange of genealogy info on the internet.  The material on this website is
contributed by individuals all over the country in the hope that it will be useful to others.
It is provided by volunteers at their own expense & is the best available to us.
In spite of our best efforts, you will find errors in the material online, so beware of taking
one item as "proof".  Researchers must sift through the material here & compare it to
other sources & ideally to an original record (though these can contain errors also).
If you have seen the handwriting on on an old census, or if you have tried to decipher an
old worn gravestone, then you will understand the difficulty.  Published histories also
contain errors, as they tended to idealize the facts and pass along previous misinformation.
If you have comments or corrections regarding the material on this website,
please direct them to the Coordinator.

* How to contribute: We welcome your suggestions & submissions of genealogy materials,
in the form of scanned images or text files attached to email.  Contact Linda

bios, etc.  Find out how to volunteer by contacting the NY GenWeb or US GenWeb.
