The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society and the Central New York Genealogical Society are pleased to announce that our 2015 New York State Family History Conference has been chosen by the Federation of Genealogical Societies as one of their regional conferences.
Marcia Kirk, Director of Public Programming, will host two exclusive basic orientation tours for the NYG&B. Participants will spend the majority of time in the Archives Reference Room, where they may conduct their own research. This is a rare chance to research in the Municipal Archives when it is closed to the public.
Research assistance will be provided by NYG&B experts.
The NYG&B's popular annual Albany research trip is Thursday-Saturday, October 29-31, 2015. Join the New York experts, the people who know New York research best, for three days of research concentrated in the vast resources of New York State Archives and the New York State Library. You'll also enjoy the camaraderie of friendly people who share your interest in family history.
Not your ordinary cemetery tour—instead attendees will visit the archives of Green-Wood Cemetery and see some millions of original records.
A guided tour, led by Green-Wood Green-ealogy staff, will feature samples of the original ledgers and documents covering more than175 years. Green-Wood has one of the most comprehensive and best organized cemetery archives in New York. These records are now being shared with researchers through the Green-ealogy program.
