Collection Close-Ups

The NYG&B has been publishing at least one new collection online each week—continuously adding to the thousands of pages ranging from county histories, immigration records, and vital record substitutes from all over New York State and New York City. What do these records contain? How can you use them to discover more about your New York story? Each month NYG&B’s online series Collection Close-Ups explores one or more of our many online collections, explaining what you can find and how you can search.
