Hello! Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, our collections do not include personnel records for Corning Glass Works or Corning Incorporated.

Factory workers can be difficult to trace because they are recorded infrequently in published literature and our archival collections currently contain few employee records.

Local Genealogical Resources

For the Corning area, we encourage you to contact the Southeast Steuben County Library to gain a greater understanding of genealogical resources that are available: (607) 936-3713.
