New York Research by Shirley Becker. 16 April
New York Research
Roundtable sharing and NewYork Research will be lead by Shirley Becker
16 April. Time 6 to 7:50 p m at the Lemon Grove Library.
Shirley will be sharing her knowledge of many years research in New York, being born there.
New York is a difficult state to locate information.
Having done research there for more than 20 years, it appears to be a very difficult state to
Locate data. The court systems are different also.
Having used usgenweb.org and familysearch.org as my main sources. Having also used
Rootsweb for surnames and place sources.
In recent years, worked with NEHGS and New York Archives.
Shirley's ability to explain towns, etc is excellent.
Remembering counties boundaries changed many times and some very
Early records are in England and maybe France.
Lots of luck and if you have success we would love to know about it.
