Family History
How do I list the families that I am researching on this website?

First, you must be a member. If you are, and would like to have your name, address, email address, web page and families that you are researching listed, please email them to us at:
We only accept last names because it would get too complicated to keep the page updated. We send this listing on request to non-members.

You may also contact us at to update your listing.
If you prefer, you can also send it to us via the regular mail at:
MVHS, Post Office Box 659, Port Jervis, New York 12771

Do you want my family genealogy?

Yes we do! Our large collection, which is the finest in the region, is due in large part because our members have been so generous. We have hundreds of files and family histories at our library location.

For more information on our genealogical research policies
please visit our Genealogical Research Page.

minisink history
By Madlyn C. Jamison
"I want a divorce!"
He/she then said:
"Dead ancestors fill dressers,
And lie under our beds.
They're stuffed into closets,
And piled everywhere.
A creature can't move
Or find a free chair! Forms, pedigrees, photos,
Relics and books
Cover floors and the
Furniture wherever you look!
You've got to stop going
On researching jags.
I'm up to my ears with
Your boxes and bags!
But you keep on collecting
More genealogical stuff!
Then there are nights
When you don't come to bed,
'Cause you'd rather be doing
Your ancestry instead!
Since this hobby of yours
Has come on the scene,
I have not a spouse
Nor a house that is clean!
Listen well, my darling--
Take heed, my dearest--
Give up this obsession
Or I shall depart
And leave you for good--
With your SMITHS and your TARTS.
OH??  You'll need a computer--
A copier and a printer, too?
To work up MY pedigree
Before I depart?
Sheesh! My love,
You're really all heart!!"
