This guide to the genealogical sources for New York City first appeared as a series of articles in the "New England Historical and Genealogical Register" between 1952 and 1954, and was reprinted subsequently as a monograph by the author. 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.
