A private society, the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society publishes a newsletter (The New York Researcher) and a scholarly quarterly, The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. Its library holds much New York State and related material, both for New England and the Mid-Atlantic states. For New York there are censuses, federal and state; land and probate records; a large manuscript collection of church, cemetery, Bible, and other records; and an extensive amount of published family and local histories. The library subscribes to many online databases and makes ProQuest, with the fully word-searchable New York Times (1851–2001), and HeritageQuest Online, available to its members through remote access. Nonmembers can use the library for a small fee, but only members have access to the stacks, manuscripts, and microforms. The library provides a list of area researchers.
