The NYG&B is a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of New York family history. For the past 150 years, we have been preserving valuable genealogical and historical records, producing peer-reviewed genealogical scholarship, and providing crucial resources to help amateur and professional genealogists navigate New York genealogy research.
Interns play a significant and valued role at the NYG&B, carrying out challenging tasks that make an important and visible difference.
We are currently seeking interns to work on various digitization and indexing projects as part of the preservation process. We have a high-powered scanner that allows us to digitize thousands of records per week. Interest and experience in working with historical records, knowledge of early American and New York history, and experience reading handwriting are desired.
Internships are typically eight weeks long and require a 10 hour per week commitment in exchange for college credit.
Graduate students in the fields of public history, library and information science, archival management, and records management are encouraged to apply.
