New York Genealogical and Biographical Society eLibrary At Findmypast

Findmypast has announced that they have been working with the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society to make the eLibrary of the society accessible through the Findmypast website.

Now available online, the eLibrary of the NYG&B includes the second oldest genealogical journal in the USA – The Record.  First published in 1870, it has for 145 years proved to be an extremely valuable resource for New York State families.

As well as The Record, other genealogical data is also available – census fragments, marriage and death information, registers of baptisms and diaries. More than 32,000 digitized colour images of various publications, records, inventories and books stored by the Society can now be explored using Findmypast’s search and viewer tools.

This is just the first phase of the project and more updates will be added in 2016.  The eLibrary collection accessible through Findmypast will eventually comprise of millions of USA records.
