One of the values of a concentrated study such as this is that it creates a guide to resources for further research.

When the study is focused on historical geography, as ours was, this compilation of resources helps others interested in a particular area or region, such as the Mohawk Valley.

In the following sections, the serious researcher and those with a casual interest in regional history will find valuable clues to often difficult to find documents to help them in their quest for new information.

Of particular note in this study is the compendium of historic maps that record in detail the upper Mohawk River Valley in the 18th and early 19th centuries. An attempt was made to find and record every map of this geography within this 100 year period. The reader will find this is a most valuable resource.
