Rediscovering New York History and Culture Website
The New York State Archives has recently developed a new website as part
of its mission to ensure that all the diverse communities, peoples, and
events in New York history are fully documented and that documentary
evidence is easily accessible for research and learning. The
Rediscovering New York History and Culture website serves as a pathway
directing users to historical records and resources around the state.
To access the website, log on to the State Archives web site at
http://www.archives.nysed.gov/ and select Rediscovering New York.
A variety of tools have been developed to tell the stories of New York's
communities and people including:
· A statewide "catalog" of archival/historical collections and finding
aids found in the statewide Historic Documents Inventory.
· A directory of historical records repositories in New York State.
· A wealth of information on special topics and areas of interest.
Arranged topically, each page provides listings of projects, links to
finding aids, digitized images, on-line exhibits and publications, and
links to other resources. Underdocumented topics include: African
Americans, Latinos, Mental Health, and Environmental Affairs. Special
Areas of Interest include: genealogy, military, transportation, and
If you have on-line finding aids, digitized images, exhibits,
publications, or a project report which relate to historical records in
New York please let us know, dhs(a)mail.nysed.gov, so we can include your

I am looking for birth records in Genesee Co during the above period.
My ancestor was in the Genesee Co 1820 census, Middlebury Township. I
don't know where he may have lived in New York prior to that. Details:
Ira M MUNSELL and Vilaty UNK MUNSELL
son b ca 1818 NY
son b ca 1821 NY
son b ca 1823 NY
son b ca 1824 NY (these are children who grew to adulthood. There
may have been earlier births, not surviving - just don't know)
So far I have used the FHC services to examine early records for a church
in Middlebury, but did not find birth records (this was REALLY difficult
to read - very dark images, lots of debris in image, small,narrow
handwriting, etc, so could have missed something).
My ancestor bought land from the Holland Land Compay in 1821 (thanks Rose
Scott!!!), so I know he was there for about two years at least. It's
logical to assume his sons' births occurred in (near) Middlebury.
Can anyone recommend a film I can order from LDS FHL that has had
this type of information for this period? I've ordered some films, but
just haven't hit on the one that has extensive birth records.
Thanks in advance,

Maybe this will be of some small help.
