The NYG&B New York City research trip is back in 2017!  Join us for four-plus days of intensive research as well as camaraderie.

Begin on Sunday afternoon with an introduction to research in New York City and an overview of research repositories.  Our NYG&B New York experts will help you research at our partner repositories the New York Public Library and the New York City Municipal Archives. Optional visits include the New-York Historical Society, the Center for Jewish History, and the National Archives at New York City.  Individual consultations and research assistance during the week are included. The week will have a tour of the historic Fraunces Tavern Museum followed by dinner at its restaurant.

Trip with hotel accommodation and “commuter” options are offered. Our hotel is the Hotel Mela, on 44th Street between 6th and Broadway, a block from the NYG&B offices, and two blocks from the New York Public Library.

The number of places in this trip will be limited, so register today in our online store.

Registration for NYG&B members and non-members is now open.
