NYG&B Premier Events and Seminars
The New York State Family History Conference
Among the NYG&B’s signature events is New York’s largest statewide family history conference—a gathering point for the top voices and experts in the genealogy and family history fields. The conference brings together researchers, genealogists, and all those interested in family history for a deep dive on how to navigate family history in New York State.
Webinars, Workshops, Lectures, and More
Every month you'll find a mix of genealogical deep dives, fascinating discussions with leading historians, and the latest in family history tech and digitization— held both online and in person at our beautiful New York City headquarters.

Travel and Discover with the NYG&B
Research Trips with the NYG&B
Our research tours are an ideal setting for both those just beginning their genealogy search and those seeking answers to longstanding New York questions. Registration includes a pre-consultation with a professional genealogist and lectures to prepare you for the on-site 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 on an exclusive guided tour to the Netherlands in 2024. We partner with on-site 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!
