Mohawk City Directory 1888-1889
Herkimer County, NY
Part 2




The Herkimer County 1888-9 Directory is a great source for filling in the missing census records of 1890. Individuals in this directory would have likely been in the federal census of 1890. As Jo Dee Frasco said in her transcription of the 1869-1870 directory, "In producing these directories, a few residents may have been missed. Absence of a family or person does not always mean that they didn't live there." All original spellings and punctuations were retained from the original records and have been proofread by a third party to ensure a proper transcription. Mohawk has been divided into two files because it contains over 600 names.

From Herkimer County 1888-9 Directory, published by Lant & Silvernail, Valatie, Columbia County, N.Y.
