Event Sponsor: 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society

The surprising find of a set of scholarship applications to the State Institute of Applied Agriculture, now Farmingdale State College, led to a treasure trove of genealogical information. Research led to collections that enhanced information from the applications. These resources will be presented which can be applied to other research. Most examples depict Jewish families involved in agriculture on Long Island.

This session will be recorded for NYG&B member access.
