The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society has produced county research guides for genealogists and family historians.
What's in each county guide?
- County map: Shows current town and city boundaries, and the location of Indian reservations
- Gazetteer: Each county guide inventories historical and contemporary names of every city, town, and village in a county, as well as any changing geographical borders.
- Repositories and Resources: Locate the records you need - an annotated list of government offices, repositories, societies, and organizations holding records and collections useful to genealogists.
- Selected Print and Online Resources: Each guide offers selected print and online resources about that county that will be particularly useful for the genealogist.
