The Central New York Genealogical Society is fortunate to have many generous members and speakers who
have offered to share their research with our members and the genealogy community at large. These abstracts
and transcriptions often come out of personal research and interest, but the act of sharing this work benefits all
of us. We thank our members for the following research, and encourage our members to continue to submit
their quality research.

Listing of people with maritime occupations in the city of Oswego (by wards) and towns  of Oswego and Scriba extracted from the 1860 U.S. Census: Oswego has always enjoyed the distinction of being the oldest U.S. port on the Great Lakes. For the largest share of the 19th century it was also one of the busiest, at times visited by more than 100 schooners in a single day. An article in the spring 2010 issue of Tree Talks generally outlines the history of the port and how its development resulted in a mass migration of Canadian and European sailors, shipbuilders, ship carpenters to this city starting in the 1840s. Knowing or unknowing, there are many descendants of these people who still call Oswego their home, carrying on the names of their ancestors who came here seeking new opportunities. This is their story. Richard Palmer
