Miscellaneous Herkimer County Birth Notices

From Newspapers over 100 Years Old

Herkimer County, NY

Do you have old birth announcements from newspapers over 100 years old? Please send us your Herkimer County-only related finds. A brief mention may be the solution to someone's brick wall. It might document a child born after the 1880 census who didn't survive until the State's 1892 or U.S. 1900 censuses, document a first-name variant, or let other researchers know that an infant with no first name on a cemetery list was a boy or girl. Please include the name of the newspaper, if you have it. If you don't have the exact date of publication of the announcement, to ensure privacy of the living, be confident from your knowledge of that family's history that the announcement is at least 100 years old and the person is probably no longer living. Be sure to put "HERKIMER COUNTY BIRTH NOTICE" in the subject heading of your email so that it's not overlooked or deleted as spam.

Born to Chas. M. Devendorf and wife Sunday Sept. 8, a daughter.
