At the Sunday, November 17, 2001 "Going to the Poorhouse" presentation,         hosted by Heritage Hunters at the Saratoga Public Library ...

Karen Ufford Campola, Saratoga County Historian ...

... shared with us the wonderful story of the recovery of their long-lost
Saratoga County Poorhouse record book ... through an eBay auction!
Note: We both look better than those photos!  (Sorry, Karen.)  PHL

Above you see the only volume of poorhouse records known to still exist.  It was purchased from eBay and is now in the county historian's office.  At that time it was learned that the companion book of records for the children's home was also privately owned, and it was also donated to the historian's office.
