From the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record
This is a collection of articles published originally in The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record containing primary source materials on Long Island.The records included range from censuses and lists of early inhabitants to newspaper notices, wills, deeds, town records, and Bible and family records. Among the census records in this volume are the Southold census of 1686, the Hempstead census of 1698, and the 1800 federal census of Kings, Queens, and Suffolk counties. Early Kings County wills and deeds are abstracted, as are wills found in Queens County deed books. In addition, there are town records or vital statistics for Newtown, Huntington, Gravesend, Hempstead, and, especially, Southold. The entire collection of articles is completely indexed (25,000 entries!) and forms the perfect companion volume to the two-volume Genealogies of Long Island Families (see Item 3433).
