Looking for ways to share in Jefferson County life? . . . .

Want to make that connection with someone researching the same places and families as you? . . . . Do you have something to contribute to the family history community? . . . . Then this is the place for you!
Below are links to the best known and used resources for sharing genealogical information about Jefferson County online -- please support them!


Contribute to Jefferson County ALHN! Town coordinators are always looking for new material and new volunteers. Many towns have no one looking after them. If you are interested in adopting a town, please contact Mark Wentling. Visit the Towns page on this site and get in touch today!

Contribute to the Jefferson County GenWeb, coordinated by Nan Dixon: this is the first and most comprehensive site about Jefferson County history and genealogy on the internet! Nan and her team of volunteers dish out primary records on a monthly basis and are always seeking the help of transcribers and submitters for new material. One of Nan's most successful projects is the "Jefferson County Pioneers" which consists of user-submitted family group sheets for over 500 settlers who arrived in the area before 1850. Submit yours today and provide that essential 19th-century New York link for someone else!
