Surname Files

The Society maintains unrivaled collections of obituaries, wedding announcements, and other newspaper clippings and loose papers related to families in the area. These are categorized by surname in files in the Society's library. Please note: the materials which they contain are not available online; however, we have over 26,000 surnames in our files. (Listings last updated January 2013.)

To make for shorter loading times, surnames have been grouped by first letter. You may click on the relevant letter below to open a .pdf (Adobe Acrobat) file of surnames beginning with that letter. Don't forget, you may also want to search for alternate spellings of names. (Use the back button to return to this page.)

You can also download the entire surname listing in two .pdf documents -- Letters A through K and letters L through Z.
