Local History

New Yorkers and individuals who are interested in New York's local history benefit from the efforts of local historical societies, government officials, and others who have collected, preserved, and made accessible documentary evidence of New York's past. Local governments, local historians, and some social, religious, and fraternal organizations make their records available to researchers and genealogists. State's government agencies' records also document the growth, development and change in our communities.
