In 1876, the Munro family began holding annual family reunions in Elbridge, NY. At the height, these events typically attracted hundreds of family members from across the region and the country. They were primarily a social event but were also used to begin the first known coordinated tabulation of family history for the descendants of Squire Munro. This research collection contains annotated transcriptions of articles from the local newspapers that regularly reported on such events. These range from 1876 through 1924 with attendee lists from several reunions held in the 1980s. More than 1,000 footnotes identify the family members mentioned in the articles.
