The Special Collections Department of Penfield Library is not a geneological library. We have a local history book and manuscript collection, and an oral history tape collection which may be of interest to genealogists in some cases. Our holdings can be searched through our library catalog. Special Collections also houses college records and other collections, but these must be searched on the premises.
There are more accessible resources for genealogists in Penfield's other collections, for example the 19th century newspapers on microfilm for which we have an index that currently covers most of the years from 1820 until 1856. This index is based on a card index which is still being converted. The microfilm of the newspapers, like the census, the Oswego County Historical Society Journal and most local history books, is available in the regular collection.
Genealogists are welcome to visit the library and use these materials. To help orientate you, we have prepared an annotated "Guide to the Genealogical Resources of Penfield Library." A copy may be found at the Research Help Desk.
Please keep in mind that with a few exceptions, we do not have vital records, cemetery records, property records, or local school records. Nor do we keep a thorough index of obituaries. We are not primarily a genealogical library. The best place for you to start is:
384 E. River Rd.
Oswego, NY 13126
Digital copies of directories, newspapers, diaries, correspondence and other resources that may aid in genealogical research can be found using the New York Heritage Digital Collection.
We do not have staff time to do your research for you. For research assistance, contact the Oswego County Historical Society. It operates a research and referral service for genealogists and is experienced in this line of inquiry.
