The goal of this project is to gather and consolidate records such as censuses, documents, and pictures with Wikitree profiles and other resources to give future researchers a better understanding of Greene County, New York, United States. It is also our hope to make genealogy research on these families and in this place easier on those who come behind us.
Right now this project just has one member, Caitlin McCann. With my job, I am currently unable to grow this into a proper One Place Study but hope this can accomplish something similar. Greene County has been a central point of my family research especially the Catskill Mountains. I look forward to sharing my records and research with others looking in the same area.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- Adding profiles of people who were born, lived for any length of time, or died in Greene County
- Upload census records and create Wikitree profiles for those who don't already have one established
- Compile a list of resources available for others to research the area
- Create a history of Greene County including establishing boundaries for what constitutes Greene at any given time
