PERSONAL NOTES FROM READERS:
Note: No "Inmate Registration Certificates" were
microfilmed for Schuyler County; we suspect that the county never established

We are hoping to build this base of information about the poorhouse in SCHUYLER county through the helpful participation of readers. All are requested to submit items of interest by sending
to The Poorhouse Lady.
