Long Island Source Records: The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record
Long Island Source Records: from The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. Selected and Introduced by Henry B. Hoff. . (1987)

This is a collection of articles originally published in The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record containing primary source materials for Long Island. The records range from censuses and lists of early inhabitants to newspaper notices, wills, deeds, town records, and Bible and family records. Few other works on Long Island offer such a range of materials; hence the value of these source record articles from the Record, which has been at the forefront of Long Island genealogy since 1870.

The census records include the Southold census of 1686, the Hempstead census of 1698; and the 1800 federal census of Kings, Queens, and Suffolk counties. Early Kings County wills and deeds are abstracted, as are wills in Queens County deed books. There also are town records or vital statistics of Newtown, Huntington, Gravesend, Hempstead, and, especially, Southold, which has vital statistics from town records and the "Salmon Records," a private register of marriages and deaths from 1696 to 1811.

This work, completely indexed, has 25,000 entries!
