ORANGE COUNY JURY LISTS VOLUME ONE 1798 – 1825 by Kenneth A. Dunning. Months of transcribing done in the basement of the 1841 Court House have produced this new and valuable source of genealogical data with 13,265 entries that has been buried for over 200 years in a storage closet under the basement stairway. Hundreds of folded up sheets of Jury lists that the Town Supervisor, Town Clerk, and Town Assessors would put together affirming the competency of individual Freeholders residing in their towns were tucked away and buried in an old cardboard box. County lists were drawn from the ballot boxes where the names were added or removed each year on the authority of the Town Officials. The lists were used to find Jurors to serve on Courts of Common Pleas, General Sessions of the Peace, Circuit Courts of Oyer and Terminer, and General Gaol Delivery. What has been organized and transcribed are: 1. Town lists of qualified Jurors whose names were deposited in the boxes at the County Clerk’s Office AND 2. County panels of Jurors drawn from the names in these boxes used to find Jurors to serve on Courts of Common Pleas, General Sessions of the Peace, Circuit Courts of Oyer and Terminer, and General Gaol Delivery. 2010, Soft cover, 268 pages. $22.00


DEATH RECORDS [ORANGE COUNTY, NY] FROM THE MORTALITY RECORDS OF 1850, 1860, 1870, AND 1880 by Kenneth A. Dunning. The four schedules abstracted in this book contain a total of 3,244 death records. Questions were asked by the Census takers concerning deaths that had occurred in the household within the previous year – meaning June 1st through May 31st as indicated in this book. The sub-title page at the beginning of each section lists the questions that were asked such as age, month of death, occupation, where born etc. The 1880 records have a two page spread of information put it in a format that is easy to follow. A true treasure trove of genealogical information and a definite must have for Orange County research. This book completes the trilogy of vital records now unlocked by the Krish and Burrows books previously published in recent years. An every name index created by Dan Burrows makes this book easy to use. 2006, soft cover, indexed, 146 pages. $16.00

ORANGE COUNTY MARRIAGES AND DEATHS FROM THE NEW YORK STATE 1865 AND 1875 CENSUSES Compiled by Dan Burrows and edited by Barbara DiMunno. At the end of family enumerations for each district in the towns and cities of New York State, the 1865 and 1875 Census takers asked questions relating to marriages and deaths that occurred in the previous year beginning June 1st 1864 ending May 31st 1865 and again June 1st 1874 ending May 31, 1875. This information was recorded for each election district in the towns. There is also an additional 5 year bonus of death records of soldiers who died in, or of causes related to the Civil War between 1861 and 1865. These death and marriage records were abstracted from the census microfilms by Dan Burrows and listed in the original order by Township and Election District. Proofing was done by Barbara DiMunno from the original records located at the Orange County Clerk’s Office. An every name index was also compiled which includes the maiden names of females when known. A must have for all Orange County researchers. 2004, soft cover, indexed, 146 pages. $15.00

OFFICIAL VITAL RECORDS FROM THE VARIOUS TOWNS OF ORANGE COUNTY, NY --- BIRTHS, DEATHS, AND MARRIAGES 1847 – 1849 WITH A SUPPLEMENT OF ADDITIONAL MARRIAGE AND DEATH RETURNS by Jeanne and Lee Krish. The New York State legislature passed a law in 1847 requiring school district clerks to send vital record information to the Secretary of State via their local town clerk. Copies of these records were then forwarded to the county clerks. It appears that only statistical information was supplied to the State and the actual vital records remained with the town and county clerks. The law was difficult to enforce, and most school districts stopped doing this by 1852. Unfortunately Orange County stopped this practice in 1849. From various correspondence found with the records, it appears that many school district clerks did not file any returns to the town clerks. One town clerk actually supplied the names of the district clerks who failed to do their job. Therefore, many vital records were never recorded. Several years ago a drawer full of Vital Record Returns for the years 1847 through 1849 filed from the 15 towns (all those existent in 1847) of Orange County, New York were rediscovered by an OCGS member. Jeanne Krish saw the need for these records to become easily accessible to the public and recruited her husband Lee to help create this monumental database. A true genealogical treasure enhanced by an every name index of 13,776 names of those who were born [including parents' names], married, or deceased along with any other names mentioned of genealogical value. A separate index of Marriage Officials has been added. 2003, soft cover, indexed, 288 pages $22.00

NEWBURGH

HISTORY OF THE TOWN AND CITY OF NEWBURGH, NEW YORK INCLUDING A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE COUNTY OF ORANGE by Edward M. Ruttenber. One of the rarest editions of this comprehensive history of this famous historic city and town on the Hudson River. Very few copies of this rare edition are still in existence. We were only able to locate three copies in our quest to republish this long sought after work.

Mr. Ruttenber published a history of the Town and City of Newburgh in 1859. In 1875 he published a revised and expanded edition, and about 1887 he again revised it and added to it many historical addresses, perhaps a small quantity to account for its rarity. The Orange County Genealogical Society has created a 12,000 + every name index to this all important publication.

Aside from the extensive history of Newburgh and the outline History of Orange County, this volume is loaded with area genealogies which are now unlocked by this new index. This edition is a must have for any Orange County researcher having ties to this area. It will also make a great gift to give to other families members and friends. We reprinted only 500 copies so supplies will not last forever. Owners of previous editions will want to purchase this edition for the corrections, additions, and especially the index. Ca 1887 (2002 reprint), 540 pages, hard cover, illustrations, general index, index to photos and illustrations, every name index. $35.00
