Oswego County Newspapers (and more) on-line

You will note that on my website I have listed as one of my favorites which is an excellent free source of early newspapers of Northern New York State.

Many, many thanks for posting the fultonstory website on the NYOneida rootsweb mailing list. I took a look yesterday a 10:00 a.m. and six hours later had to give it up to go to a meeting. I grew up in Herkimer and many of my father's ancestor's lived in Oneida County, so this site was a real gold mine. I was able to fill in all kinds of details thanks to you. So again, many thanks.
