Most of the resources that I
have been using in my research are records that contain information on
death, health, and mortality. Because of this, I have generated a
number of lists that detail the morbidity of the local populations.
The original data sets from which I gleaned this information typically
also include data on other aspects of life such as births and marriages
- but I do not have most of this data computerized.
The information comes from
several sources including municipal records that were required to meet
state and local health laws, by churches who maintained membership rolls,
and in newspapers where marriages and deaths were often reported.
Although my collection is very death-oriented, I hope to also include some
of the other lists of births and marriages. I have some of this "extraneous"
material at hand, but it is in no way organized and I must refrain from
doing lookups (sorry). Most of the lists are available at various
Madison County Libraries, in published form, through the LDS Family History
Centers, and in published books and genealogical newsletters.
So far I have available:
Selected entries (deaths only) from Robert
Hendrix's Abstracts from Madison County Newspapers = all
the early death notices for Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson (similar
to Meyer & Scott's work, but more complete and accurate) (LOCAL
Births Registered in the Town of Cazenovia.
Marriages Registered in the Town of Cazenovia.
Deaths Registered in the Town of Cazenovia.
Also, a list of Town
of Cazenovia Death Certificates, 1884 to 1916, including
over 2,000 names.
Census Death Lists, including
list of 1850 to 1880 census Death Schedules
