While the genealogical landscape has changed considerably since 1954, the Guide to Genealogical and Biographical Sources continues to be a reliable pointer for the manuscripts and printed works available in the five principal libraries with New York City genealogy holdings--the Brooklyn Historical Society (formerly Long Island Historical Society), New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, New-York Historical Society, New York Public Library, and New York State Library (in Albany). No other guide to New York genealogical resources has dealt with this subject so comprehensively, a fact borne out by the following range of subjects covered by the author: probate records, deeds, births, marriages, deaths, censuses, burials, military records, passenger lists, naturalizations, biographical sketches, special court records, voting records, church records, and many more.
