That is very interesting. Ohio collected only marriages beginning in 1788. It tried a records experiement in 1857 to see how collecting births and deaths would work. Then it finally instituted the law in 1867. However, even though people grumbled about it, they just kept persisting until everyone got use to the idea. New Yorkers must be a little more determined in their resistance back then than Ohioans.
Is there a library, historical society, or genealogical society in Otsego County that has published books on the church records?
