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,

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.
