Thomas Lannon, Assistant Curator, will provide an orientation to the genealogically pertinent holdings of the Manuscripts and Archives Division, as well as expert advice on how to optimize your search for archival material at the NYPL. Searching the collection starts with the special catalog for the Manuscript Division and the online finding aids. Learn the best ways to utilize these resources to plan your visit. Participants will then explore a selection of documents, manuscripts, and photographs spanning four centuries of New York history which will be on display exclusively for our visit.
