Erie County is in Western New York, and contains the city of Buffalo. I was born in Erie County, in the Town of Tonawanda. Many of my ancestors immigrated to Erie County from Alsace and Germany in the 1800's. Most of my mother's ancestors settled in Lancaster and Buffalo. Some of my father's ancestors immigrated to Niagara Falls, which is just north of Erie County, and others to Welland County, Ontario, which is west of Erie County across the Niagara River.

Here is a map showing the towns (townships), cities, and villages of Erie County:
