A few good links
April 20, 2009 - Bill Ackerbauer
In response to NYMomma's request for links to good Johnstown history sites on the Web, I have a few to suggest:
Wikipedia has some good entry-level information about Johnstown's history.
Here's a thumbnail sketch of the city's history, on the city's Website, by City Historian Noel Levee.
The following site is a trove of information about Johnstown's past, with many useful links: Fulton County NY Genweb
Here's an interesting paper I stumbled upon online. It describes an archaeological dig at Johnson Hall conducted in the early 1990s.
Of course, many of the best sources of local history information are not available online. The historians themselves -- Noel Levee, Peter Betz and Wanda Burch, among others -- are the go-to-gurus.
The Johnstown Public Library has an excellent archive of historical materials, as do the Johnstown Historical Society and the Kenneth R. Dorn Regional History Study Center at FMCC's Evans Library. The Evans Library also maintains this storehouse of historical photographs, which is definitely worth browsing through: FM Photo Archives.
I hope you find these useful.
