NYG&B Premier Events and Seminars
The New York State Family History Conference
The gathering point for New York genealogy and family history. This year’s event will feature live broadcasts of activities in Buffalo and New York City, New York, alongside access to 15 on-demand sessions.
Book Talks, Workshops, Colloquiums, and More
In 2023 we're keeping our calendar full year round! Every month you'll find a mix of genealogical deep dives, lectures from leading historians, and the latest in family history tech and digitization—and many of our events will be held both online and in-person in our beautiful NYC headquarters.
Online Learning at the NYG&B

Learn at your own pace through guided, on-demand sessions focusing on a specific family history topic. Tuition includes access to five sessions for 60-days, two live group sessions, syllabus materials, a certificate of completion, and an invitation to the annual online NYFHS alumni reception.
Empire State Exploration
An ideal interactive experience for tracing your New York ancestors from home with New York’s experts. Participants join a small group of fellow researchers for three days of guided online research. Each session features a guest genealogist, six lectures, individual consultation sessions, and group question-and-answer. Attendees have access to materials for 30 days following the program.
Travel and Discover with the NYG&B
Research Trips with the NYG&B
Our research tours are an ideal setting for those just beginning their genealogy search or seeking answers to longstanding New York questions. Registration includes a pre-consultation with a professional genealogist and lectures to prepare you for the onsite guidance offered throughout the program. Register early, as a limited number of spaces are available for each tour and often sell out quickly.
Join the NYG&B's exclusive guided tours of Germany's Palatine region and Scotland in 2023. We work with onsite experts to provide an eclectic mix of private tours, educational events, and sightseeing. As with our research trips, these programs sell out fast, so be sure to register soon!
