Page navigation bar — In March 2015, we began using a different format for these bars which you see above and below the text of each subsection of Mrs. Egy's book. Instead of listing all the pages we've transcribed so far, we condensed this feature by showing only the page ranges of other subsections, but individual page numbers within this subsection. As time permits, we'll make it standard.

1 In case you're wondering about these place names, there is an Otsego county in the state of New York, about 90 miles west of Albany, which includes the town and village of Otego.
2 Although Mrs. Egy lists William on page 25 as William Henry S. Winans, his entry on page 10 does not include the S. If you have any information as to his correct name, we would appreciate your input.
3 We came across Theodore (listed as T. E.) Winans' family in the 1840 census, on the last line of the fifth image for Genesee township, where they moved between the births of Ira and Edwin. Besides Theodore, Cynthia and their first three children, the line includes 3 males 15-20 years old, 11 males 20-30 years old, and 2 females between 15 and 20. We're curious whether Theodore operated a boarding house, or a farm so big as to require a lot of additional labor!
