New York History and Genealogy Project
Part of the American History & Genealogy Project

Welcome to the New York History & Genealogy Project, my name is Dennis N. Partridge and I am the new SC for New York AHGP.  This website features genealogy and history articles to assist you in your research of your New York ancestors. Along with the articles, you'll find cemeteries, census, directories, and other genealogy records here.

AHGP is an unincorporated network of independent Web Sites devoted to History and Genealogy and covering North American Countries and Territories. Anyone with a genealogy, history or related project or topic sites are welcome to join. Tor more information about our group, including how you can join us, please see our About Page. After reading what were about and you you feel a State or County page is more than you would want to do, take a look at our Volunteer Projects.
