The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society (NYG&B) has begun work on a guide to the New York State Archives, designed specifically for genealogists, local historians, and other researchers.
The publication is expected to feature more than 20 chapters outlining materials from the State Archives collections that are helpful for tracing New York families.
The publication is being produced in cooperation with the State Archives and will be authored by professional genealogist Jane E. Wilcox. Wilcox is a member of the New York State Archives Advisory Committee and the NYG&B Family History Advisory Committee. Wilcox is an occasional contributor to the New York History Blog.
The new guide is expected to be published in 2019, the 150th Anniversary of the NYG&B.
