Oneida County Historical Society


Although the records center does not house Vital Records, many of our resources are useful in compiling genealogies.  We have a number of city directories for the cities of Rome and Utica, large collection of DAR records, marriage records from 1921-1929, local newspapers from 1841-1879, as well as deeds and mortgages.  For other resources, you may wish to visit the Utica Public Library which is just a few blocks from the County Office Building.  The internet is also a good place to look for genealogy information.  Two sites you may wish to visit are and
