Your New York Research Just Got Easier–

I finished not just Researching Your Roots in New York, 5–I completed Volume 6 as well.  And, if I do say so myself, these volumes are especially helpful.  I scoured my seminar files  for all of the best stuff I have talked about the past couple of years.  And I reviewed Linda’s seminar presentations too.  Then I went back through all of our client files for references and strategies that we have used the past ten years to find hard-to-find ancestors moving across New York.

Next I surveyed the extra handouts I use for classes and seminars.  And I re-did and updated and illustrated with my very best maps.  I held nothing back that I thought might be useful to you.  Here are the contents for you to review for those items that might provide solutions to the research challenges you face.
