NEHGS – Online Conference: Researching Upstate New York

Saturday, October 20, 12:00–6:00 PM EDT

Presented by Genealogists at NEHGS

Cost: $125

Finding information about New York ancestors can be tricky. A fire in 1911 at the State Library and the fact that statewide registration of vital records did not start until 1880 only add to the difficulty. The presentations within this Online Conference will guide you through the maze of genealogical pitfalls, and to the bright spots in New York research. Our New York experts will discuss the settlement of New York and early migrations, vital records and substitutes, land and probate records, the state census, and more.
