Yesteryears - New York State history - Updated 12/6/2019

Updated: Dec 6, 2019

Despite having thousands of old books at our fingertips online, there are still some we have to hunt down. For example, this periodical I learned about on FamilySearch. The contents of the book were not available online when I first discovered it, but now it is!

"Yesteryears : a quarterly magazine for the appreciation and study of New York State history" was written by Francis V. Grifone (1896-1977) and published in Scipio Center, New York.


My interest in this work is for general local history and biographies written by Elizabeth M. Reese in a section called "Nutshell Biographies: of early settlers of Cayuga County". She provided a brief history-genealogy of early settlers, birth dates and places, names of parents, children, occupation, and her work was published in portions in the following volumes of Yesteryears:
