Finding Genealogical Treasure in the NYS Archives
From its earliest years, government in New York has involved itself in the lives of its residents. Whether its vital statistics, education, incarceration, military service, court actions, or political activity, an amazing collection of voices of New Yorkers can be heard through the records in the State Archives. This session will provide information on some of the onsite and online resources available for family historians.
Kathleen Roe is the Director of Archives and Records Management Operations for the State of New York. A champion of researchers, she made possible the release of archival records, including the 1915 and 1925 NYS censuses, to Ancestry.com only upon guaranteeing that NYS residents would have free access to those records. Ms. Roe is a member of the New York Family History School Board of Advisors.
This joint lecture is free and no registration is required. It will be held in the Berger Forum, Room 227 (second floor) of the New York Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzmann Building.
