McKelden Smith, President of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, joined me on The Forget-Me-Not Hour last week. He had a lot to share about what is happening with one of the oldest genealogical societies in the country.
The NYG&B, as it is widely known, has downsized and refashioned its focus for the 21st century. Today the society manages the website www.newyorkfamilyhistory.org, where you can access all of the New York G&B Records from the first issue published in 1870. The NYG&B Record contains a wealth of genealogical and historical information about New York families from the earliest days of Manhattan in the 1600s to 20th century records and family histories.
In addition to its publications, the NYG&B sponsors genealogy workshops and collaborates with institutions such as the New York Public Library to educate and inform family historians.
