At 7:00 pm, September 23, 2009 at the Conklin Barn at 2 High Street in Huntington, NY, the Huntington Historical Society presents an excellent genealogy workshop. The speaker is Maira Liriano, Manager of the Milstein Division of U.S. History, Local History and Genealogy at the Stephen A. Schwarzmean Bldg of the New York Public Library.

The New York Public Library, one of the world's largest and most accessible genealogical collections just got even bigger. Last summer the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society's extraordinary collection of genealogical and biographical materials focused on "families, persons and citizens associated and identified with the State of New York" was donated to the New York Public Library. Joining the Library's already rich and heavily used genealogical and manuscript collections the merged materials of the NYPL and the G & B will create an unparalleled, publicly accessible resource. This lecture will provide an overview of the G & B collection and highlight other exciting developments at the New York Public Library.
