Your Gateway to New York Genealogy and History

NYGenWeb is a member of the USGenWeb Project and is coordinated by (Robert G. Sullivan), (Martha Magill) and (Tim Stowell). The real work is done by our dozens of county coordinators and their volunteers, and you may see that through the county selection page.

About the NYGenWeb Project

Requirements for Home Pages Created Under the NYGenWeb Project

A message was sent out over the GEN-NYS-L mailing list in June of 1996, asking if anyone would be interested starting a NYGenWeb page similiar to a highly successful project underway in Kentucky. Many people expressed an interest in this idea. About the same time, Jeff Murphy, then coordinator of the KYGenWeb, decided to go national with the idea, and out of that grew the USGenWeb project, and the NYGenWeb project.

If the county in which you are interested does not have a page or is marked as Adoptable on the County Selection Page and you wish to participate, please contact Robert Sullivan at If there is a county you would like to volunteer to help with — transcribing data, typing contributions of data into a text file, HTML coding, etc. — please contact that county's coordinator.

You are our 4704065 visitor since August 1, 1996-- thanks for stopping by!
