Looking to learn more about your New York ancestors and family history? The NYG&B is here for you. As the second-oldest U.S. genealogical society, we help people discover their own New York story through our extensive records and resources; educational programming; and landmark publications.
If you are not yet a member of the NYG&B, please join us for an in-person informational session with light refreshments to learn more about the NYG&B and how we can connect you to the stories and history of your New York ancestors in more detail than you ever thought possible. You will meet NYG&B staff members who will share what you can discover and access through our:
- Vibrant mix of online and in-person educational programming like webinars, courses and workshops, conferences, and research trips and tours.
- Extensive online records and collections from all over New York State and New York City, many of which have never before been digitized and are unlikely to have been preserved online elsewhere.
- Quarterly publications for our members with rich resources and tips for genealogical research, along with many other guides, resources, and other historical works to help you in your family history search.
- Other perks, discounts, and special access for NYG&B members.
Following a short presentation on how we can help you navigate your New York genealogy research, attendees will have Q&A time with staff.
Whether you are just starting out on your genealogy journey or are a more seasoned researcher looking to tackle advanced issues, the NYG&B can help you discover your New York story.
This is a free, in-person event and light refreshments will be served.
Please note: This event is for those who are not yet NYG&B members. If you are already an NYG&B member, watch this webinar recording on how to make the most of your membership benefits with us instead.
