Send These to Me: Immigration and Ethnicity in Tompkins County by Elaine D. Engst and Carol Kammen
Published by the Tompkins County Historical Commission in 2022
Tompkins County Historian Carol Kammen and former Cornell University Archivist Elaine Engst work 'Send These to Me' to tell the story of immigrant communities who came and made their homes in Tompkins County. Send These to Me hopes to show where we have come from and, hopefully increase our understanding of where we are going as a society. This history looks at human habitation and immigration of Tompkins County following the Revolutionary War and the forced relocation of the Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫɁ, Tutelo, and Saponinis by the 1779 Sullivan-Clinton Campaign.
Includes summaries of known immigration and settlement by the following groups: English, Dutch, German, Jewish, Italian, Syrian, Chinese, enslaved and free Black Americans, Finlanders/Finnish, Central Europeans, and Greeks.
