About me: Jerry E. Reed
First and foremost, I am a seasoned voice talent and media/public relations specialist with many other interests. I have been helping businesses with their narrations, presentations, commercials, and more all of my adult life.

I am also a genealogist, a
n avid photographer, and artisan bread baker.
My genealogy interest began before personal computers were a family "must have." Personal genealogy computer research has blossomed in the past 15 years. It wasn't long before someone decided that they could charge for information that should be free and in the public domain. I have always been frustrated by that. Now, thousands and thousands of pages of useful facts are coming on line daily in free-to-access digital archives located all over the world. So, I'm constantly searching for new sources of free on line material. Blog updates follow this section and all links are added to the master list below the new posts.
Updates are posted when
I discover another new source or when something I have already reviewed gets a major update.
Have fun and enjoy.
Note: if you find a link no longer works, please let me know so I can research and update it.

New York - Putnam County Courier Newspaper

Here's another collection of free local newspaper pages.  This one for the Putnam County Courier, published beginning in 1849, focuses mainly Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester counties in New York and is provided by the Mahopac Public Library.  This is the area in New York between the Hudson River and Danbury Connecticut.

Thank you so much - you are a saint! My great-great grandfather
was proprietor of the Putnam Courier in the 1800's. It is amazing to find this resource
on-line. God bless : )
