New York has been called “the first West for New England” because so many New Englanders settled there before continuing westward. Understanding patterns of settlement, expansion, and migration can help identify your ancestor’s deep New England roots. In this online lecture, Senior Genealogist Kyle Hurst will discuss the historical context, records, and research strategies for tracing ancestors on the move in the Northeast.
