Family History

Primary sources....secondary records....wills and probate packets....cemetery records....military records....SSDI....message boards....RootsWeb.com....Ancestry.com....the list goes on! The Internet has opened the door to an endless array of online databases and repositories. 

Today millions of Americans are searching for their ancestors.  Many have been tracing their family tree for more than a decade.  It can be exciting.  It can be frustrating.  And it can definitely uncover the expected! 

The Tottenville Historical Society has been helping family historians with their research for many years, sometimes providing new information or new direction.  Some of these families include:

Androvette Butler Cole Cooper Corson Doty Ellis Frerichs Friedrich Hamilton Harris
 Hill  Holm  Hudson  Manee  Mercilliott  Page  Palmer  Patten  Pepper  Murphy  Petersen
 Rossel  Riley  Schult  Siebert  Taber  Totten  Wadsworth  Woglom  Wood  Peterson  Russell
Taylor
Bedell
Shea
Kreischer
Kiefer
           

 

A check of our archives would include (1) all published Staten Island historical books (late 19th century-circa 1930) in our library, (2) indices search (newspapers, business, scrapbook collections), (3) historic maps, (4) family history folders and subject files including community folders once we can determine where they lived,  (5) any other relevant source available in our collection.
