Notice to genealogists and other researchers
NYSCOGO and this webpage is run by volunteers. As an organization, we are not able to offer individual help with your family history research. However, we can point you to member organizations throughout the state that might be able to help you. Keep in mind that many times the first step in researching New York State is to access NYGenWeb online and click on the appropriate county page for records and contact information.
