Review of 2013 Additions on Monroe Co. GenWeb; part 2

Continuing on with the additions to the GenWeb of Monroe County for 2013…

There were just 2 new cemetery records added this year. The first cemetery used to be called the Stone Road Cemetery. It is a Jewish cemetery that in the northern part of Rochester on what was originally Stone Road but after road realignment became Stonewood Ave. Reorganization in the 1960s put this cemetery in an umbrella organization with the Britton Road Cemetery that is only a block away but is in the Town of Greece. There are approx. 3200 burials in the Stone Road Cemetery so it on 2 web pages; Surnames: A – K (and introduction) and Surnames: L – Z.

Karen Dau completed the transcription of the very large Range 8 in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester. Part of Range 8 contains a separate section for World War I veterans. All together there are approx. 4000 tombstone inscriptions for Range 8 split into 2 web pages; Surnames starting with A – K and Surnames starting with L – Z.

I added 2 pages of marriage records that I extracted from The Daily Record (July. 1, 1936 – Dec. 31, 1936 and Jan. 1, 1937 – June 30, 1937. That is a legal newspaper published in Rochester. Those records don’t give parents names but they do give the bride and groom’s age and residence and the groom’s occupation. Also there is Marriages and Deaths from Rochester Newspapers from the first half of 1831. That period is notable for the death of Nathaniel Rochester. As you would suppose considering the City is named for him; there are long obits for him.

The Northampton Town Records; 1797 – 1808 contains the records of this early Town that once encompassed all the land in NY State west of the Genesee River. Named are town officers, including poor masters, fence viewers and overseers of the highways. The records also contain layouts of highways and expense accounts. Wolves were a problem in those days and a bounty of $3 per wolf was given for killing a wolf. If you have early settlers in western NY then you should check out the Northanpton records.
