The Central New York Genealogical Society was formed in 1961 for the purpose of preserving, publishing and sharing genealogical information and resources. Toward that end, it has published Tree Talks, a highly respected, 64-page quarterly. Tree Talks is a valuable source of information on tens of thousands of people who lived in upstate New York. Each issue contains abstracts of significant records from upstate New York counties and is fully indexed, annually.
During its six meetings held from March through November, the Society sponsors experienced genealogists to share their expert knowledge on the research and publication of ancestral information, and to educate in the professional standards of genealogy. Workshops and seminars are held occasionally, to assist beginners with their research. All meetings are open to the public for a small donation.
