Newspaper Notices

In the past local newspapers published notices of weddings, births and deaths, just as they do today. Currently our office has only some of these notices indexed but more will be added soon.

The Penn Yan Democrat (successor of the Penn Yan Herald) was the first paper published in Penn Yan. Its first issue came out in 1818. Our office is currently in the process of adding indexes and extracts of notices from the Democrat.
