Seven thousand Hudson-Mohawk Valley (NY) vital records, 1808-1850
"In the towns and cities of New York, prior to 1880, official records of marriage and death were rarely filed. Fortunately, newspapers can often be used to overcome this deficiency, as they contain a wealth of information about the marriages and deaths of local people. Moreover, newspaper notices of marriages and deaths often contain detail lacking in the more frequently sought cemetery, church, and town record books. The compilers of this book have joined forces to produce a list of 7,000 marriages and deaths--naming 20,000 persons in all--from fifteen newspapers of the Hudson-Mohawk Valley area, giving researchers a much-needed boost in their search for vital records." -- Publisher description.

Does not do much good to have a book if you cannot even find a place to buy it. Doesn't do much good to have it digitized if you cannot find a copy of that either. Harumphhhhhh
