Individual Genealogists

Series Creator:
Warshaw, Isadore, d. 1969  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1833-1928
Scope and Contents:
This subseries includes the personal papers of individuals engaged in the study of their ancestry and family history. Among these materials, there are historical narratives, family trees, family registers, photographs, correspondence, and documentation of family births, marriages, and deaths. The bulk of these materials consist of the personal papers of Frederic C. Torrey, a genealogist located in Lakehurst, New Jersey. He corresponded with numerous Torrey family members from across the United States. His papers include correspondence (circa 1890-1916), historical narratives about the Torrey family, family trees, family questionnaires, detailed information about Torrey family births, marriages, and deaths, and other miscellaneous items. Peter C. Schuyler's papers include correspondence with Schuyler family members (circa 1883-1884), historical narratives about the Schuyler family, tombstone inscriptions, and detailed information about Schuyler family births, marriages, and deaths. It is unclear where Peter C. Schuyler lived. Walter Freemont Mead was a genealogist from Troy, New York. His papers include correspondence (1908-1928), personal notes, newspaper clippings, photographs, family registers, and materials related to his involvement with the New York Society of Sons of the Revolution. The Read family materials included in this series were not compiled by a specific genealogist; however, they do document some historical information about the Read family through correspondence, photographs, and other notes.
Arrangement:
Items in this subseries are arranged alphabetically by family name (Mead, Read, Schuyler, Torrey) and then in chronological order (where possible).
Series Restrictions:
Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.
Series Rights:
Collection items available for reproduction, but the Archives Center makes no guarantees concerning copyright restrictions. Other intellectual property rights may apply. Archives Center cost-recovery and use fees may apply when requesting reproductions.
