Marriages and Deaths from Rochester Newspapers
Jan. 1, 1834 - June. 30, 1834

line

Vital records in New York State weren't recorded by the state until 1880. For early vital records you have to either find church records or hope that the event is recorded in the newspaper. For the time period of this page, there were these newspapers published in Rochester:

  1. Rochester Daily Advertiser was published from April 5, 1830 to Dec. 12, 1856. There are no known issues for the first half of 1834.
  2. Rochester Republican (weekly) was published Aug. 7, 1827 - Aug. 27, 1884. This was the weekly newspaper that was published by the same office as the Rochester Daily Advertiser so it has many of the same records. There are no known copies of this newspaper for the year 1834.
  3. Anti-Masonic Inquirer (weekly) was published from Feb. 12, 1828 to Feb. 1834. There are no known existing copies of the issues from 1834. In Feb. 1834 it merged with National Republican to become the Monroe Democrat. There are no known issues of that newspaper either.
  4. The Rochester Gem (semi-monthly) was published 1829 - 1843. The Rochester Public Library has a bound volume of all the issues from 1834.
  5. The Liberal Advocate was published from July 3, 1832 to at least July 1834. There are only 4 issues at the Rochester Public Library for the first half on 1834.
  6. Rochester Daily Democrat was published from Jan. 1833 - 1870. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm that begins on Feb. 17th 1834 but there are 30 missing issues from then to the end of June.
  7. Family Journal, and Christian Philanthropist (weekly, religious) was published from Aug. 1833 to at least March 1834. All existing copies are available online from the Rochester Public Library.
  8. The Rights of Man (semi-weekly, anti-slavery) was published in 1834. It does not contain any vital records. All existing copies are available online from the Rochester Public Library.

The records on this page are extracted as published in the newspaper. Small monthly calendars are included to help when a newspaper record states that an event happened "last week Thursday."

You may wonder about birth records. Except for a few rare birth notices, birth records were not published until the mid twentieth century.

Two abbreviations that appear frequently in these old records are; inst. and ult. Their meanings are inst. = instant, an old word meaning this month and ult. = ultimo meaning last month.
