We also offer an opportunity to have our NYS Volunteers do some limited (2-3 hrs.) research in the NYS Library/Archives for you at no charge.  There is a form you must complete that asks: 

  • what are you looking for
  • what do you know about the person/family already
  • what sources have you already utilized
  • your contact information.
