Throughout the years, our librarians and volunteers have clipped and copied loads of news articles and filed them by surname in our library. Files like these may also include pedigree charts, family group sheets, pictures, and more if members have donated them.
I love that you never know what you might find in these files:
If you have family story written out, family group sheets, pictures, pedigree charts, newspaper clippings, funeral cards, etc. that you would like to donate to our Vertical Files, please contact us! Our library is located on the 2nd floor of the Niagara County Historical Society located at 215 Niagara St., Lockport, NY 14094. We are open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 1 – 4:45pm or you can reach us by e mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
