SNGF: Historical County Boundaries

Per Genea-Musings.  I went with two locations actually: first was Mendon, Monroe, New York; the second was Livonia, Livingston, New York.  Although in different counties, they are actually quite near each other.

My ancestors (Collins, Jackman, Doyle) arrived in Mendon in 1809 and 1811 respectively.  In 1828 some of them decided to move to nearby Livonia.  Thanks to the challenge, I now have a better idea where to look when I pursue land records for these ancestors.  Both Mendon and Livonia were a part of Ontario County until Monroe and Livingston were formed in 1821.
