This section is about a total of 800 pages of information on various residents, at various periods, within Ontario Co., NY.  There are a variety of surnames that are in each section listed in the above table that may contain other family names as well, so I would suggest to use the SEARCH engine, putting in the surname you are seeking. 

Also, while combing these pages, you may want to use the "Cntl -  F" key function, by hitting these two keys simultaneously.  A "find" box will open, where you can put in a key word you are seeking (ie:  SMITH ) and this will help you scan through each page you have open to find any (SMITH) you are seeking.

Words from the contributor, Robert Ronald Hanley Sr.:

"It is with great pleasure, five years of research, many traveled miles, and most of all, a smile, that I present to you our Heritage. What I have here  is only part of the gleanings from my database, done long ago yet I've continued to research and add a ton more newspaper input since then, but all does not appear here. 

The BEGINNING, this is the quest. As I see it, working as a genealogist is truly finding satisfaction when a new name appears. Of course the name must take us further back, toward the progenitor, and that will be the beginning. The only END would be not completing the quest. 

 In the true spirit of genealogists, my sharing of these records is done with a feeling of accomplishment. You and I may now stroll casually from our existence, to those days before we arrived, following our bloodlines to a source which sometimes may well surprise each of us. And as an added benefit many new relatives who are still living may come forward and present themselves, and we will welcome them to our family circle. 

 I gave four copies away to Canandaigua Museum, Bloomfield Museum, Ontario County Archives and Victor Free Library. Today if I were to compile this research it BEGINS with 4700 pages of data and photos of individuals. I would then probably have another 500 or more pages I would select for the book. I could never duplicate the original copies, so I just burn CD's periodically of the compiled database.

Anyway, you can see that I do keep involved, and work on this project seven days a week. Literally!!  May you enjoy and hopefully find a lead to your beginnings."

Robert Ronald Hanley Sr.
