Research in New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County is an introduction to resources and repositories essential to genealogical research in these geographic areas. “Millions of Americans have ancestors who spent some time in the New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County area,” said Laura Murphy DeGrazia, author, “and knowing what resources exist and where they are located can help family historians be more successful in their research.

The National Genealogical Society’s Research in the States series, of which this book is one, had its start in the NGS Quarterly with the publication of Master Plan for North Carolina Research in 1987. The Quarterly continued to publish state guides and NGS later issued many of them as special publications. This series includes both revised editions of earlier guides and some new states. Additional states are planned and Family Roots Publishing plans to distribute them as they are printed.
