Refugees of 1776 From Long Island to Connecticut by Frederic G. Mather  Originally published in Albany, New York, 1913
A Complete Searchable Publication on CD
Following the Battle of Long Island (August 27, 1776), more than 5,000 refugees fled Long Island and New York City for the security of Connecticut. The account of their flight and subsequent adventures, their biographies and genealogies, and the history of New York in the Revolution form the main subject of this giant work. Its 1,204 closely documented pages, 886 illustrations, and 20,000-name index furnish the historian with exhaustive and fascinating reference material. Contrary to some popularly held opinions, the refugees were not Tories; many of them saw service with the militia and the Continental Army, and their service records are included in the text along with a complete list of the Long Island Militia and the Long Island census for 1776.

About Our CDs

      Many of our CDs are composed of collections of multiple texts and documents concentrating on specific regions or subject areas.  Many contain 5, 10 or more separate publications.  Each CD is truly a reference BONANZA to the home historian with thousands of pages of research information.  The age of most of these text make them inaccessible to the average researcher.  Naturally their scarcity and fragility makes them very expensive to acquire  hence often kept under lock and key in an effort to preserve them. Unfortunately this also makes them unavailable for public view. Our CDs are produced by scanning the actual pages of the original text making them not only excellent resources but archival copies available for future generations. If you could find a hard copy of any of these books it would cost hundreds of dollars - individually worth many times the cost of  a CD. The average cost of a single CD, containing our "theme or regional" based collections has been kept affordable in an effort to make this information obtainable to as many home researchers as possible.
     Our CDs have become the ultimate research tool. Having a copy on hand allows research at your leisure and your schedule while in the comfort of your home. Additionally you can still print individual or groups of pages as you need directly from your CDs.  Giving you the best of both old and new research techniques.  Unless otherwise noted most pdf Files are now searchable.  Searchable pdf files allow single or multiple file searches with one search request.
