Lost Souls Bound Out
Parents Known

Disconnected family members are one of the biggest stumbling blocks to genealogy research. This can happen for several reasons, including divorce, remarriage or adoption. Sometimes family members don't even know about the other people. Other times, they know some of the facts, but the records are misleading or incomplete.

This section of the site lists children who were bound out to families in the Broome County area. This is to aid researchers find children who seem to drop out of family genealogies. WORK IN PROGRESS

If you know of such a situation, please e-mail me with specifics and I will add it to this section.
