Go to your local public library branch again. Examine the local history, archives and/or special collections section. Ask a librarian if you don’t know if your library has special collections or where they are located. Be sure to check the reference section, too, as many of the newer and more valuable books are held in that area. If you have a genealogy blog, write about what you find in your library’s local history and special collections.
Slightly late, but better than never;-)
At the Onondaga County Public Library Central Branch, the Local History/Genealogy room is amazing. It is on the 6th floor and contains a tremendously large amount of books and microfims. Some of the items I have used in the past or need to check out that are useful to my searching are:
|Marriages from Buffalo church records 1825-1900, volume 1 : transcribed from microfilm of English-speaking Protestant church records and compared with marriage license records in Erie County Hall|| |
