While many of our ancestors may have come from New York, finding them and the records left behind is another story. New York research offers certain challenges and it helps to know the strategies needed to tackle those Empire State records. You’ll not only get a quick lesson in New York State history and understand why the different regions are important, you’ll also learn about special record sets and resources unique to New York. Whether your ancestor was a Knickerbocker or an immigrant, you’ll be in a “New York State of mind“ with these research tips, tricks and tools.

This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on May 30, 2012. 1 hour 30 minutes. Plus 4 pages of handouts.

  • 5+++  It helped to re-energize interest in my NY ancestor research. I had previously given up because I'm on the west coast and it was frustrating and disappointing. Thank you very very much Geoff & Thomas!
  • A great overview of the history of NY and sources for records to locate ancestors.
  • Absolutely excellent. This is the best I've ever been to in person or seen.
  • As always Thomas is FANTASTIC! He makes things so clear and east to understand.
  • Excellent presentation and easily understood. I am now on info overload - - and loving it!
  • I've discovered there is always something worth learning in these webinars even if the overall subject matter isn't applicable to my research!
  • Fantastic to see all the websites available to us New York researchers. A number of new ones I had not yet seen. I use Fulton all the time, it's just great for NY.
  • He's absolutely fabulous. I've heard him before, but there's always something new to learn. In addition to the clarity of his presentation, he provides information that extends to other questions we might have, in other words, a more global presentation other than the exact topic. I've learned so much. He is a superb genealogy trainer.
  • I found out more about the links for New York then I ever had expected. Thanks for all the good information.
  • Love the resources, especially the atlas of historical county boundaries.
  • Super speaker, organized with outstanding visuals and links. Realized how many sources I had not located in research of my husband's Richmond/Staten Island ancestors.
  • Your webinars are always great cuz they make us want to run out and do research.
