CD: History of Schoharie County, New York, 1713-1882

CD: History of Schoharie County, New York, 1713-1882 - William E. Roscoe. Twenty-three chapters draw from official documents, personal scribblings, and public records to expound everything from Schoharie County's first immigrants to its settlement and government, to its geography and population, to its industry and amusements. Histories of every town in the county are included, and biographical sketches of notable citizens are scattered throughout the text. An appendix contains transcripts of historical speeches and writings, a new surname index has been merged with an a "facts and places" index compiled some time earlier, and the book closes with an alphabetical listing of prominent persons that includes biographical data. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
