Webinar: Navigating Records of the NY State Canal System

Thursday January 12, 7:00 pm ET

This webinar will give a short background on the New York canal system and discussion of the different occupations that our ancestors might have had.

It will also cover Canal Town folks' associations, where the repositories are located, and where some names are in online sources.



Indexing and Digitization Weekend

Friday January 13 and Saturday January 14

We're kicking off a new digitization and indexing project this week, and we need your help!

We're indexing and digitizing important NYG&B collections to make them more accessible to our members.

Participate from the comfort of your home - we are in need of volunteers to index or help prepare files remotely.
