GSBC General Meeting: New York Research
Presenter: Barbara Ellman
So many of our immigrant ancestors began their American journey by living in New York City. Many families started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn. Their children may have moved further afield to Queens, Westchester, Long Island, and New Jersey.
In this talk Ellman will identify resources such as vital records, naturalization, probate, property, and newspapers. Many will be available online but we'll note which can only be found on-site at various archives and repositories.
