The Salmon Records

   The Salmon Records: A Private Register of Marriages and Deaths of
   the Town of Southold, Suffolk County, N.Y., and of Persons More or
   Less Closely Associated with that Place, 1696-1811, William Salmon,
   New York, New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 1918.

I have extracted these records from the book published in 1918, which itself
is a reprint of records published in the New York Genealogical and
Biographical Record(NYGBR).  The first column is the page number within the
book where the record occurs.  The second column is the page number within
the copy of the Salmon records the book was prepared from.  Data contained in
"[]" is as in the book and is information unreadable or lost (due to damage
to the original) and is infered from context.  Information in "<>" is my
comment. "*"d notes are as in the book, except that I have moved the note
from the bottom of the page to the item where it applies.

The "Salmon Records" was a private register of marriages and deaths occurring
in Southold, NY, begun in 1696 by William Salmon and continued by members of
his family until 1811.
