The New York Genealogical & Biographical Society


For nearly 400 years, New York has been known for the diversity of its people. Whether your ancestors were among the first Europeans or Africans who came to New Netherland, or the Native Americans who were already living here, or whether they were among the long stream of immigrants from all over the world who came in the subsequent years, the G&B is here to help you learn more about those ancestors and the world in which they lived.

The G&B is a membership organization, and new members are always welcome. Benefits of membership include access to all of the Library's collections (published materials, manuscripts, and microforms); subscriptions to our two quarterly publications, the Record and the Researcher, and discounts on other publications; unlimited queries on the NYG&B Bulletin Board, four free queries per year, published in the Researcher and on our website; access to our Members' Area, and reduced fees for educational programs and our library's record search service.
