Society Saturday: The Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society
For Luxembourger-American families from Erie County, New York, a good place to start is the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society. Based in Buffalo, the Society's primary focus is the city itself and the famous people who lived there. President Millard Fillmore is especially well represented. Yet, there also collections of use to less prominent natives. The research library indicates holdings of manuscript material, a card index for obituaries in area newspapers, and more. They even suggest genealogy books that may of use. While few of the Society's resources are online, they will do obituary lookups for a fee and offer a list of professional researchers for more detailed research.
