  • An In-Brief Guide to New York Genealogy (Laminated)

    $9.95

    An extremely important item to remember about research in New York State is that there is New York City, and the rest of the state. Many vital and other records concerning the five counties which comprise today’s New York City itself are not kept in other parts of the state. European settlements in the eastern and southeastern part of the state date from the early 1600’s, while parts of the western area were not fully established until the 1860’s. New York has mandated historians at the village, town, city, county and state level since the early 1920s.

    The In-Brief Guide to New York Genealogy written by Larry Naukam, contains Factoids, Timeline, Research Strategies, Migration Routes and Motivations and many other recommended resources. This 4-page printed guide is laminated.

    Please note: Guides will be shipped weekly on Saturdays using the US Postal Service.

  • An In-Brief Guide to Pennsylvania Genealogy (Laminated)

    $9.95

    Pennsylvania’s nickname, the Keystone State, is true in genealogy as well. Many of our early ancestors first came to America through the port of Philadelphia which was also the nation’s first capital before it moved to Washington, D.C. “Penn’s woods” welcomed people of all faiths and ethnicities making it Penn’s “Holy Experiment.” The westward expansion of the early 1800s toward Pittsburgh and the head of the Ohio River saw our ancestors open new territories. The industrial revolution of the late 1800s and early 1900s brought new immigrant workers to the coal mines and steel mills of Pennsylvania. The Allegheny Mountains, which run through the center of the state, were a barrier to westward expansion and still divide the state today with differences from language accents and food to sports and politics.

    The In-Brief Guide to Pennsylvania Genealogy contains Factoids, Timeline, Research Strategies, Migration Routes and Motivations and many other recommended resources. This 4-page printed guide is laminated.
