It was a longstanding tradition for members of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society to donate their research files and published family histories to the NYG&B’s library. Today, NYG&B members are invited to donate their digital family histories to the NYG&B’s online Family Files collection. Interested members should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The inclusion of material in the Family Files collection does not constitute an endorsement of its content or accuracy. Please send any additions or corrections to email@example.com.
These records contain PDF images of the original family history files. The available information will vary from document to document, but you may be able to discover the following:
Information pertaining to military service, immigration, and education
Bonds and business-related correspondence
Personal letters, wedding announcements, and other ephemera
In the Useful Links & Resources section you can access a browse-only version of these records. There you can filter by title and flip through the images as you would a book.
