WELCOME TO ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY
NEW YORK


 

 

My name is Brenda Becker, and I am your host for this page

Both of my maternal grandparents settled in St. Lawrence County, and I have many happy 
memories of the summers and holidays spent in the "north country" Once I became an adult I was
thrilled to be able to both enjoy the scenery and do family research at the same time. I hope that you will enjoy this page, 
find something that will help you in your search for your family history, and contribute valuable information here!

I welcome submissions. Births, marriages, obituaries and any county related information may be sent to me here: Email
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.


We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this website become a useful research tool.

If you would like to join our group and become the host of this county, please read what we're all about on our
Volunteer Page
(A desire to transcribe data and basic webpage skills are necessary)


WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.
