The Cross Index to Surnames was created in the Office of the County Clerk as a guide to last names in alphabetical indexes in that office for the time period 1898 to 1931. It is a useful tool for seeing how the spelling of family names may have changed over the years, and for suggestions on alternative spellings to look up when searching for family records.
The Cross Index is a single volume arranged alphabetically on 51 pages. Listed on the menu to the left are the first three or four letters for the first and the last surname to appear on each page. Click on the appropriate span for the name you are looking for to see the actual page.
