Historical Records
Select Desired Town/Village:

Welcome to the Onondaga County archival records listing. It has been our desire to bring together a listing of all records of archival or historical value in one on-line location. As lead agent in this inter-governmental cooperative project, the Onondaga County Clerk is coordinating this county-wide effort. Ultimately, we hope to include all county, town, village and city listings on this web site. It is our objective to increase access to these records for public and administrative use.

We also wish to thank the New York State Archives who provided funding through the Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund (LGRMIF). We also express sincere appreciation to the participating local governments for their dedication and cooperation in making this project a reality.

The individual records listed in this database are held at the respective local government offices. Each local government has different ways of listing and accessing their records internally. Please confer with the particular Clerk or other official for specific information regarding your search.
