King's County Brooklyn History

Kings County (Brooklyn), N.Y. -- History
 
[Note:  Kings County, better known as Brooklyn, is a County of New York State; and after 1899, it also the most populous Borough of New York City, after Manhattan.  It is also the western-most ofLong Island's 4 counties.  Though physically part of Long Island, like Queens, Kings can choose to consider itself part of NYC or Long Island, depending on circumstances.  Hence, the often confusing distinction between Long Island (in general) and L.I. "proper" (Nassau and Suffolk).]

  • Brooklyn Daily Eagle Online, 1841-1902 (Brooklyn Public Library) -- Ed. note:  A wonderful resource, that often provides a searcher rich rewards.  Its coverage includes both villages and cities across the length and bredth of Long Island, from Brooklyn to Montauk and Orient, and points in between.  Searcher's note:  In some cases place names have changed, and you may need to use an older version.  Some places are better covered than others, and some were much more remote, rural, and much more lightly populated than in the period after 1902.
