Historic Council Proceedings, 1817-1900

In 2009, the City of Rochester received a grant from the New York State Archives Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund to digitize the proceedings of the Trustees of the Village of Rochesterville (1817-1834) and the Common Council of the City of Rochester (1834-1900). The original records are housed at the city's Municipal Archives, 414 Andrews Street. 

The files are in PDF format and organized by volume and year. These are scanned images and, therefore, not text-searchable. Some volumes include an index, arranged by subject, that can be found at the beginning of the file. Keep in mind that some of these files are quite large, up to 180 megabytes, and therefor may take a few minutes to download to your computer.
