NYG&B on the road: Where we'll be outside of New York

Friday, March 22, 2019 - 10:45am

There are members of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society all over America - we know better than anyone that not just New Yorkers have New York roots! 

We offer a lot to our members in far-away states, like webinars, digital records, and research services like records retrieval and remote consultations. But it's always great to connect in person, so we're hoping to shake your hand at an event soon! 

We just got back from a great RootsTech 2019 conference, and we're thrilled to see so many of our members from Utah and beyond. 

We'll soon be in New Hampshire, Missouri, California, Indiana, and Washington D.C. - read on to see where to find us in each state.
