- 35. Re: [NYGENESE] Land Record questions 
- Yes, the Holland Land Company Records are different then the records of
deeds at the county clerks office. The Holland Land Company was exactly
that. A company which sold land. If you were one of the few who could buy
your land outright from them, then you would get a deed and THEN record it
at the Genesee County Clerks Office.
Most people put a deposit down on their land. Then made payments to the
land company. When, and if, the land was ever paid off, they would then get
a deed from the land company

- 45. RE: [NYGENESE] Land Record questions 
- One of the transactions many people overlook - which also adds to the "not
found deeds" is when the real estate is sold on a contract for that deed.
This was and still is a very common way to transfer real estate and to
further complicate searching for records - that buyer may in fact sell it
again on a contract. As a banker I testify to the fact that this happens
very often, and may delay recording the deed for many, many years. Best

The 9th edition of The Handy Book for Genealogists records that:
Monroe County was formed 23 February 1821 from Genesee & Ontario Counties.
Ontario County was formed 27 Jan 1789 from Montgomery County.
Genesee County was formed 30 March 1802 from Ontario County.
On today's Road Atlas I see Chili Center south and a slight bit west of
Rochester in Monroe County, NY, but no Chili.

If anyone can get me either a scanned copy (jpg perferred- 100-150 dpi) or

included on the Genesee GenWeb.
This goes for any information, books, parts of books, census, parts of
census, or anything else any of you might have.
I don't live in NY state, so I don't have alot of access to material---I
