The Connecticut Society of Genealogists, Inc. presents
“Location, Location, Location: The Oblong of Dutchess, Putnam & Westchester Counties” with Judith Herbert
Register for Zoom Meeting:
A strip of land that was sometimes part of Connecticut and sometimes part of New York, known as the Oblong, has a rich history and was home to some of the area’s early families. Understanding the Oblong geographically and administratively will help you to locate records of your ancestors that lived in the area.
