|We are happy to offer our first items of genealogy and
local history from Queens
County, NY, (one of the five counties that make up New York City today, and one
of New York State's original counties) and we plan to offer additional items of historical interest soon.
Note that present-day Nassau County was removed from Queens County in 1898 - 1899; thus many locations identified as being in Queens County in our publications that predate the division are today in Nassau County. Please see our Nassau County page for more information.

Antiquities of Long Island by
Gabriel Furman (1874). This item is a classic compendium of the
colonial history of Long Island (including modern Queens County) -- its Dutch Reformed, Puritan, Anglican
religious traditions; its time as a part of Connecticut; dealings with
Native Americans; a little genealogy -- it's all here. While Long
Island is a melting pot today, this volume reveals how long the history
of cultures meeting and mixing on Long Island has been a way of life.

Charity in Kings County, NY in 1906.(Includes public charities in Queens County). We are in the process of republishing sections of volume II of the Annual Report of the State Board of Charities for the year 1906. The material will be of interest to local historians who wish a better picture of charitable institutions in their locale a century ago, to genealogists and family historians interested in the people who administered charity back then as well as how any unfortunates housed in these facilities may have lived, and to those who have questions about the now-politicized "safety net" for the unfortunates in our society back in those years. This section addresses the public and private charities in Kings County, as well as public charities in Queens County (public charity in those counties was at the time under the direction of the Department of Public Charities for the Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens) in 1906 that were registered with the State Board of Charities. Note that a separate chapter, to be published later, covers private charity in Queens County. 90++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $4.00.
