Presentation of the NYG&B Digitization Project
In 2019, the Society of Colonial Wars in the State of New York and the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society embarked on an exciting and crucial project to digitize thousands of our applications, thereby preserving them for posterity. The older ones were bound in handsome but fragile leather volumes, others were in row upon row of files.
Our bound volumes A through S, which consist of applications dated from 1892, when our Society was founded, to 1919, is being published on https://www.newyorkfamilyhistory.org/, along with a powerful search index.
