Society Member Surname List
The purpose of the surname list is to provide every member of the society with the New York State connected surnames that other members are researching. Each member upon joining the society receives a form to fill out with their family surnames that have New York State connections. A New York State connected name is one that includes an individual that was born, married, lived or died in New York State.
Every name submitted is indexed with the member's membership number. If you are researching ALLEN, check the list for the name ALLEN. Next, use the member number(s) listed to refer to the current membership directory for the name, address, and email address of the member you wish to contact. Please note that the membership directory is available to WNYGS members only as one of the benefits of membership.
Additions to the surname list are included with the September issue of the JOURNAL. A revised membership directory is also distributed with the September JOURNAL.
