Launched in 2017, the New York Digitization and Indexing Project aims to place thousands of records from across the state of New York online. Over the last two years, we have been able to create digital records of thousands of documents thanks to the deliberate and generous efforts of volunteers.

On a weekly basis, the NYG&B staff welcomes individuals willing to give their time to the very important and time-consuming process of scanning page after page of family histories, historical records and documents of invaluable content. Our many volunteers have spent hours hard at work, and exceeded even our wildest expectations.

As part of NYG&B Week (October 15-19), we have designated Tuesday, October 16 as Digitization Day.

Can you help us reach our goal of digitizing the last five of 25 boxes of one particularly large collection? 

It is easy to learn; no special skills required. If you can’t join us on the 16th, come another day!

We provide training, while you provide the time. For more information, contact Anna King at [email protected] and (212) 755-8532, ext. 207.
