Early New York Families, 1600s-1900s

More than 338,000 individuals are referenced within this collection, covering the entire state of New York. Although especially useful for the genealogist, family histories such as these can be very difficult to locate since they are not often published for wide distribution. A family history is a written account of a family’s immediate and extended relationships. Along with biographical information on each family member, you’ll often find illustrations or photographs of individuals or significant places. Generally, you’ll learn details of personal characteristics and your ancestors’ daily lives that aren’t usually available in other genealogical records.
