Throughout Jefferson County our more than 850 farms sell as much as $139 million worth of agricultural products each year...We are the state's fourth-ranked dairy county and the 47th ranked dairy producing county nationwide. However, we also have many fine farms that grow and sell fruits, vegetables, and grains to feed families here and across the state. (Sen. Darrel J. Aubertine)
Remember, your Jefferson County ancestors were most probably farmers!

WHAT TO DO WHILE YOUR OTHER HALF IS GENEALOGIZING
This page is part of the USGenWeb Project. Modeled after the Kentucky GenWeb Project which was organized by a group of genealogists in March and April 1996, the idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In June 1996, it was decided to expand the project to include all states. The USGenWeb National Coordinator is Denise Wells.
If a New York State county in which you are interested is marked as Adoptable on the NYGenWeb County Selection Page and you wish to participate, please contact New York State GenWeb Coordinator Robert Sullivan. If there is a New York State county that you would like to volunteer to help with — transcribing data, typing contributions of data into a text file, HTML coding, etc. — please contact that county's coordinator directly.
