The meeting will include member updates and a presentation by NYPL public services librarian Diane Dias De Fazio.

What do local history and genealogy and art and architecture research have in common? How can researchers find an address, learn more about an artist's neighborhood, solve an elusive estate mystery, pinpoint historic gallery locations, and gain valuable insights from landmark designation reports? Research resources in the Irma and Paul Milstein Division of United States History, Local History and Genealogy and the Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division include property insurance maps, city directories, digitized probate records, historical newspapers, government publications, and Census and vital records (and over 400 years of New York City-area history). Dias De Fazio will facilitate a discussion on these resources at The New York Public Library and share collections materials.


Reception, Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs
Time: 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Location: The Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Trustees Room, The New York Public Library, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building

This reception is open to the pre-registered participants in the The New York Public Library, Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs Tour, attendees of the Artist Files SIG meeting, and attendees of the Public Librarians SIG meeting.
