Northern New York Genealogical Services is based in Henderson, New York,
which is located on the shores of Lake Ontario, and on the grounds of the
Oliver Bates' homestead.  Oliver Bates was an early settler of Henderson who
served in the American Revolutionary War, and together with his son, Cyrus, 
built one of the town's fine stone houses, which is currently the only site in
the town on the New York State and National Historical Registers.

Mr. Gary Rhodes of Henderson is the Chief Researcher and has spent the
last thirty years researching families of the immediate Henderson area and
other towns of Jefferson County.  Mr. Rhodes reestablished the Henderson
Historical Society in 1987 and served as its president for a number of years
as well as the town historian, and was responsible for putting much of the
town's historical files into notebooks for the town library and for compiling
a report of the town's cemeteries. 

Mr. Rhodes holds an A.A.S., a B.S., and a Masters Degree in Education, with
a concentration in History and Social Studies, and has done graduate study
at Syracuse University. 

Mr. Rhodes has been a member of the Jefferson County Board of Supervisors
and a Town Supervisor of the Town of Henderson, and volunteered for "call-up"
for both Desert Shield and Desert Storm while supervisor, and as you can imagine,
Uncle Sam took him up on his offer, and returned from overseas duty in March, 1991.

Mr. Rhodes is a member of the Sons of the American Revolution as well as a member
of the Sons of the Union Veterans of the American Civil War.

Mr. Rhodes while having done extensive research on his own family and others in
Jefferson County, has done research in Rhode Island and Connecticut for the
Rhodes family line and is compiling material for a book on Walter G. Rhodes and
the Rhodes line of North Kingstown, RI and Berlin, New York.  Recent research has
concentrated on compiling information on William Henderson, early land owner for
whom the town is named, and a book will be forthcoming soon on Mr. Henderson.

Researchers are welcome to contact Mr. Rhodes for a quote on research work.
Rates are typically $20.00 per hour, which include copying costs, mileage to the
city of Watertown and nearby towns.  Having done much research for himself,
Mr. Rhodes makes every effort to maximize results.
