The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society (NYG&B) preserves, documents, and shares the stories of families across the state of New York. We engage with genealogists, biographers, historians, and organizations to establish the broader contexts of New York’s past. The NYG&B actively fosters connections between New York’s past and the present.
As a membership organization, the NYG&B welcomes anyone with an interest in researching their personal family history or the family histories of others. Our membership includes thousands of genealogists, historians, and others from across the country. Learn more about membership in the NYG&B and how we can help you.
