ANNOUNCING EXPANDED DATABASE:
DEATHS REPORTED IN TROY, NY
This message is being sent to:

If you are researching relatives with a TROY, NY area connection, you will be interested in this expanded on-line, name searchable, data base of over 1400 names of Troy Area residents who died in 1901-1903. Over 700 deaths from the 1903 Troy City Directory were just added to the 1902 records that were already on-line. This information was extracted from Troy City Directories and information covers not only Troy but also data from the Watervliet/Green Island and Cohoes/Waterford sections of the City Directory.
Anyone who has ever used City Directories as a genealogy research tool appreciates the wealth of information available in these books. Starting with the 1902 Troy City Directory, this data base was a first step by the Troy Irish Genealogy Society to capture this information and portray it in a name searchable format that could be used by researchers who do not have access to Troy City Directories.
It should be noted that these records, like all the TIGS data bases, cover the general population in the area and are NOT restricted to Irish surnames. The information in this data base may include, in addition to the name of the individual:
Date of death.
Name of surviving spouse.
Name of deceased spouse.
Occupation of deceased and name of employer.
Street address and city of residence of deceased.
As time permits, data in subsequent years of the City Directories will be added to the on-line records on the TIGS website.
You can view these records by going to the TIGS website located at:
Troy Irish Genealogy Society website
and click on TIGS PROJECTS.
We invite you to explore the TIGS website where you will find local history articles, resources and genealogy research tips as well as several data bases and a number of interesting Troy Area photographs in the Local History Articles. Also, you can search your surnames in the following additional records automated by TIGS members and other volunteers:
Burden Iron Company Steam Mill Payroll Records. (8,236 names)
Troy Area Marriage Records. (1,448 names)
Troy Area Death Records. (6,031 names)
Index-History of the Troy Police Department. (668 names)
Bank Officers in Troy Banks From 1801-1891. (299 names)
Prominent Citizens of Troy, NY & Rensselaer County. (1,800 names)

Alderman/Assistants in Troy Wards During 1816-1891. (1,395 names)

These data bases of over 45,000 names are part of a continuing effort by the Troy Irish Genealogy Group to make available on line, Troy area records, that may be of interest to genealogy researchers, especially those outside the Troy area.
