    Sure would be nice if these free NYG&B lectures were online for those of us in the West.

      Many of our lectures are recorded on the website for members of the NYG&B. The lectures are recorded only with the permission of the speakers, and sadly not all are willing to be recorded. We have, however, recorded all that were willing. After signing into newyorkfamilyhistory.org, go to the “Research & Discover” page and open the “Original Guides, Lectures & More” menu. There you will see a link to go to “Past Programs: Slides and Recorded Lectures.” The NYG&B currently has 5 presentations available online for members, including “Family Timelines with Treelines.com” from this past Tuesday, May 13.

        Hello Robert Taylor,
        The NYG&B records and posts many of these presentations on our website for members. The lectures are recorded only with the permission of the speakers, and sadly not all are willing to be recorded. We have, however, recorded all that were willing. While we have been told that Jane Wilcox will not be recording her lecture, we may get permission to post some materials from the lecture for NYG&B members. Handouts and syllabi, where available, can be downloaded from the recorded programs webpage. After signing into newyorkfamilyhistory.org, go to the “Research & Discover” page and open the “Original Guides, Lectures & More” menu.

    Hi, I am interested in the NY manor tenant farmers. I can’t come toNY from Seattle to attend lectures. Is there a site that might have the print out of the data? 1870 NY census had my people where the Yankee stadium sets, farming at that time. Carolyn was head of house, a widow, with 7 children. Thanks, Rita Schaub Range Date: Wed, 14 May 2014 19:52:30 +0000 To: rita2260@msn.com

    Jane Wilcox, while unwilling to be recorded, is allowing us to email the handouts and materials from the program to members of the NYG&B until the end of the month. After that time, they may be available for sale by the author to the general public. If you are a NYG&B member and are interested in receiving the materials, please email education@nygbs.org using your registered email account with the subject line “Tenant Farmer.”
