     Erie County Public Library--Genealogy Information

    The public library at the bay front in Erie is one of the great resources for local, regional and state history information. The staff is helpful and most any book on the shelves can be copies on the walk-up copier.

    They also have a fairly comprehensive index of obituaries beginning in 1822 that can be ordered over the Internet for a small fee from their extensive collection of publications on microfilm. You can use the paper index at the library and view the obituaries on your own. Printing is 25 cents a page from the microfilm reader. This index is of obituaries and may, or may not, include death notices. The index of obituaries since 1987 is available on the library site.

     Erie County Historical Society and Museums

    The The Historical Society of Erie County operates several museums and has a wonderful research library and staff in their new archive in the Hagen History Center next to the Curtze-Watson Museum on West 6th Street in Erie. The only limitation is the staff must make all copies of any material you find. Admission to the library is free.

    The society has several archival collections of Erie professional photographers covering the last half of the 19th Century up to the Second World War. The price for reproduction of these photographs is very monomial.
