New Research Resource

One of the most common research questions in the D’Youville Archives is searching for a relative that was associated with the College.  The Archives welcomes genealogists and has several available resources, including yearbooks, photographs, and graduate and faculty lists.

For genealogists that want to expand their research, federal and state records can be extraordinarily useful.  In a new initiative, the New York State Archives has partnered with to provide free service for some New York State records.  These include New York marriages (1600-1784); Civil War muster roll abstracts for New York (1861-1900), US Census mortality schedules for New York (1850-1880), and New York Census of inmates in almshouses and poorhouses (1830-1920).
