We’re continually adding new genealogy records and features - researchers can use this page to catch up on our most recent additions and improvements.
Online Collections Version 0.1-beta
As the official beta release of this new platform, all features are new - we invite NYG&B Society members to explore, research, and send us your feedback.
Read on for a summary of notable features that are included in this beta release.
Search all NYG&B records at once
Researchers can perform a search of all records from the Online Collections home page. Filters based on category or creator are available to apply pre-search, and search results can be refined based on category, collection title, or location.
Collection Descriptions and Waypoints
The descriptions of all collections have been expanded - researchers may now find an exhaustive description of exactly what is contained in each collection on the individual collection page (these pages can be accessed from the Online Collections home page or the Collections Catalog page).
These descriptions feature waypoint links - these links will bring researchers to a specific section within the records of a particular collection. This is an especially useful feature on our image-browse collections, which are not yet searchable.
View, print, or download full issues of The Record
We have implemented a very popular request from our members in recent years - researchers can now view, print, or download any issue of The Record. To do so, click the "view full file" button on any single page view and a new window will open, loading the entire PDF file into the image viewer. The full file may be printed or downloaded from the image viewer.
