Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

   
This site is available for adoption!

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.


We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this website become a useful research tool.

If you would like to join our group and become the host of this county, please read what we're all about on our
Volunteer Page
(A desire to transcribe data and basic webpage skills are necessary)

Until we get a dedicated volunteer to maintain this site, we'll do the best we can to add data as we come across it.
You can
send your family's raw data (transcribed birth/marriage/death, cemetery, census, biography records) to us
and we'll include it on this site.


WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.


County Information

New York County
New York County was one of the original twelve counties of the Province of New York in 1683. It was named for the Duke of York and Albany.

The New York County consists of Manhattan Island and several small adjacent islands: Roosevelt Island, Randall's Island, Wards Island, Governors Island, Liberty Island, part of Ellis Island, Mill Rock, and U Thant Island; as well as Marble Hill, a small section on the mainland adjacent to the Bronx.
The original city of New York began at the southern end of Manhattan, and expanded northwards. Land was added between 1874 and 1898 from surrounding counties.


The County of New York is the most densely populated county in the United States.
Manhattan
Manhattan is loosely divided into Downtown, Midtown, and Uptown

Manhattan's boundaries are identical to the county's.
NY County is co-extensive with Manhattan and New York City.

New York City consolidated with the Counties of Bronx (The Bronx), Kings (Brooklyn), New York (Manhattan), Queens (Queens), and Richmond (Staten Island) in 1874.
