Change in 'Handy Links'

January, 2017 - An alert member reported a broken link in  'Handy Links'. The link to Cleaning Headstones broke because the parent group, Connecticutt Gravestone Network, changed their website around. I have reestablished the link as CT Gravestone Network and linked to their home page. There is a lot of interesting information on their site. Check out their Instructive Articles.

Followup on Veteran's Lists

January, 2017 - We are getting emails! As I had hoped, we are receiving emails from readers with service men and women to add to our lists. This is great because our new lists are just beginnings. If you do not see a name that should be on one of the pages, please email us. Include county, name, as much service info as you know, death date and burial place. Even if all you know is that the person served, we have a place for the entry.

Salute to our veterans: Thank You for Your Service!

November, 2016 - from the President. In honor of Veterans Day this year, PHGS is adding 36 new pages of service recognition in three of our counties: Allegany, Cattaraugus, and Chautauqua. The pages contain over 14,000 names recognizing service from the Revolutionary War to post-Vietnam service - with one veteran of the French and Indian War.

The names are taken from our cemetery lists. That means, despite the large number, this is probably only a quarter to a third of the count of all service people from these counties. We will be adding names as we find them. Also, the pages do not contain information for living veterans. 

I hope you enjoy these pages and that they contain information that gives you new leads to research for your family histories. As you use them, take a moment to say 'thank you' to these men and women. To get to the new pages, go to the county index and click on the Military heading.
