At the turn of the century, the NYG&B sent out a survey to churches throughout New York and New Jersey, as well as parts of Connecticut and Pennsylvania, which requested detailed information about the records they held, their history, and other denominations located nearby. More than 200 churches responded. These unique surveys are available in our eLibrary at Findmypast. An index of the churches surveyed is available in the eLibrary as well. A sample record is pictured below:
This collection cannot be keyword or name searched, however you can browse the surveys received by state and county. The majority of the survey responses were handwritten, and are unable to be machine read or searched.
