Researching New York City Resources Remotely
port of New York. Learn how to trace your New York ancestors, whether they were passing through
or called it home as well as resources to help you reconnect with family that remained elsewhere.
While on-site research is the optimal approach to research, this is not always convenient or feasible.
Nevertheless, much can be accomplished in advance or in lieu of physical travel. Components of New
York City family history can be identified without setting foot on Broadway using a broad array of free
and subscription internet sites as well as some conventional sources. These resources will be evaluated
in the context of the questions and needs of lecture participants.
