The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society (NYG&B) preserves, documents, and shares family stories across New York State. We actively foster connections between New York’s past and present. In 2019, the NYG&B celebrates 150 years with its members. The NYG&B welcomes members researching New York family history. Members receive publications and the New York Researcher, educational programming, and online resources. The NYG&B’s landmark guide, the New York Family Research Guide and Gazetteer (revised edition, 2017), is New York’s genealogy textbook.
