New York City Research Part II - Naturalizations, Probate Files, and Directories
If you are like the majority of Americans, at least one of your ancestors spent time in New York City.
Just over a year ago Steve Harris presented his first NYC workshop to rave reviews. Now he's back with a second installment – this time on using naturalization records, probate records, and city directories to research your New York City ancestors in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Attendees will also have access to Steve's large personal library of New York City telephone and city directories after the workshop.
The workshop is FREE for CGS members but is limited to twenty people. There is a sign-up fee of $20 for non-members. (This fee is non-refundable and can be applied toward membership on the day of the workshop.)
Dr. Stephen Harris is a consulting genealogist with extensive experience assisting clients with their family histories. Born in Brooklyn, he has deep roots in New York City, but the siren call of California was too strong to resist. Steve is president of the California Genealogical Society and Library. His office and 6,000-volume research library are in Oakland, just down the hall from CGS.
