In the fall of 2017, the New York State Historian conducted a survey of county and borough historians, asking pertinent questions about how his office could better support the work of local historians. Orleans County has a dedicated group of professional historians who spend much of their times working behind the scenes, bringing attention to significant people and events in local history, preserving important resources for future generations, and responding to inquiries from people located throughout the world.
