Revised and Edited by Estelle M. Guzik; published by the New York Genealogical Society, Inc. (2003). This awarding winning reference work is a comprehensive guide to genealogical and biographical resources in New York City and Albany, an updated 1989 reference work, cited by the New York Public Library as one of the outstanding reference works in that year.

For each of 82 libraries, archives and record repositories in the five boroughs of New York City, as well as a number of state agencies in Albany, Genealogical Resources provides a description of its holdings, the geographic scope of collections, the years covered, and finding aids. Approximately one quarter of the repositories are specifically Jewish; the majority hold records for all groups. Name, place, and subject indices are included.

Although more than ten years have passed since its publication and some information has changed – researchers are always advised to call a repository before planning a visit -- this book remains an indispensable addition to the library of all family history researchers in New York City, to be consulted for an overview of the holdings of all relevant research institutions.
