The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, popularly known as the "G & B," was founded in 1869. As a non-profit educational institution, our purpose is to collect and make available information on genealogy, biography and history, particularly as it relates to the people of New York State. To carry out our purpose, we maintain one of the principal genealogical reference libraries in the United States, publish periodicals and books, conduct educational programs and provide other services. Our Library's collection of published material — more than 75,000 volumes including family genealogies (more than 11,000); U.S., state, and local histories; biographies; genealogy and history periodicals; reference materials ("how to conduct research," "where to find the sources"); and indexes to genealogical and biographical books and periodicals — is open to the general public. For nearly 400 years, New York has been known for the diversity of its people. Whether your ancestors were among the first Europeans or Africans who came to New Netherland, or the Native Americans who were already living here, or whether they were among the long stream of immigrants from all over the world who came in the subsequent years, the G & B is here to help you learn more about those ancestors and the world in which they lived.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
