Recently the Family Search genealogy web site provided by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints, also known as the Mormon Church, added New York Land Records from 1630 to 1975. The records for Monroe County consists of Deeds and Deed Indexes. There are two records among the indexes for the two houses in Rochester for Austin and Mary Eagan.
The first is for their house on Flint Street which was purchased in 1942. Prior to that they (along with me and two of my sisters) were living for a short period with my grandparents on Greig Street. The house of Flint Street was located at #484 and was Lot 2 in the John Erion Subdivision shown on the Plat Book for Rochester - Volume 2 Plate 23. This subdivision is very small consisting of only four lots - two on Flint Street (the Eagans at 484 and the Dipples at 488) and two lots on Hawley Street. This is the Deed Index for the Flint Street house.

The other Deed Index was for the house on Trafalgar Street, purchased in 1950. This property was located at #15 Trafalgar and was Lot 127 of the Hiram Sibley Estate Subdivision shown on the Plat Book for Rochester - Volume 2 Plate 24. Here is the Deed Index for the Trafalgar Street house.
