As the genalogy replacement for Barbara Viele at the Sullivan County Historical Society, I would like to make contributions to the SCHS webpage with information of what we have and do in the Genealogy Department. If on the homepage you click on "Departments" at the top of the page and select "Genealogy." you will in the near future see my postings.
Also at the top of the homepage is a heading labeled "Forms" where a genealogy search request form can be downloaded. Fees for searches are on the form.
I will also give a quick response by email if it doesn't require an extensive search.
