Land Records

  • New York Land Records, 1630-1975. Herkimer County.
    Land and property records from the New York Land Office and county courthouses. The records include land grants, patents, deeds, and mortgages. Oneida County records are found with the Herkimer County records. There are two series of land records filed under Herkimer County. The one that begins in 1791 covers Oneida County, plus (during the early years after 1791) Herkimer County and probably other areas that belonged to those counties during the 1790s. The other series, which begins in 1804, covers Herkimer County only. Essentially, the early deed book series for Herkimer County was continued in Oneida County after it was created, and a new series was started for Herkimer County.
