10,000 Vital Records of Central New York, 1813 - 1850
10,000 Vital Records of Central New York, 1813 - 1850. Fred Q. Bowman . (1988)

This is the second volume in a three-volume series (see also Items 642 and 643) of vital records from New York newspapers--a series devised by Mr. Bowman to fill the gaps in early New York records. The 10,000 vital records referred to in the title of this work were drawn from the marriage and death columns of various central New York newspapers published before 1850, specifically those published in the section of the state between Geneva and Utica.

The bulk of the work concerns itself with the marriages and deaths of residents of central New York, and in the absence of "official" vital records for the area it stands as an almost perfect substitute. Like official records of a later date, the records abstracted here provide names, ages, dates, places of residence, and frequent references to family members, and a good deal of other information.
