About The New York History Blog

New York State CountiesNew York State has one of the richest histories in the United States, a tremendous opportunity for education, economic development, and creating links to our shared past through genealogy, historic preservation, and heritage tourism.

The New York History Blog, founded in 2008 and updated several times per day, promotes the state’s history community including: new research and publications; newly available collections; public history advocacy and historic preservation efforts; exhibits and events; conferences and grants; and new stories from New York’s past.

More than 30 people contribute to The New York History Blog from around the state and across disciplines.  Our audience are those interested in New York’s history, including lay people interested in learning more about the history of the state, history professionals interested in keeping up with what others around the state are doing, educators and academics interested in making connections to state and local history, and those concerned with historic resources more generally such as preservationists and genealogists.
