The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record is the second oldest genealogical journal in the country and is full of valuable documentation to aid you in your family history research. These volumes span the years 1870 to present day and cover people and events from the seventeenth century and beyond.

The Record publishes compiled genealogies documented to the highest standards, transcriptions of original records and other source material from throughout New York State, works that solve genealogical problems, and reviews of important scholarship in the field. An annual index is published as part of every October issue. However, the digital collection presents the index separately as the fifth issue of each volume.

Researchers will benefit from the million-plus names contained in the pages of The Record, but that’s not all – reading an article written about the location, time period, or subject you’re researching can help you break through brick walls as you glean tips and tricks from the expert authors of this peer-reviewed publication.
