Bibliographies of local history are essential research tools for historians, genealogists, and book collectors. This volume is an attempt to bring together citations to all the books and pamphlets dealing with New York State history at the local or community level, which were published between 1900 and 1987; also included are some of the more important local history publications published prior to 1900, as well as a few works published as recently as 1989. It is not an attempt to compile a complete bibliography of the state which would undoubtedly require several large volumes, but rather, is directed more specifically to the needs of the local history and genealogy researcher. Material pertaining to the history of the major cities of the state has generally been excluded. Periodical articles and manuscript materials have also been excluded. About 2,500 publications are described in the listings which are arranged by county and town. This revised and enlarged edition updates the 1988 work with numerous additional citations, well-annotated for informative and entertaining reading, covering the following new subjects: Hudson Valley, Indians, maps, northern and western New York, reference books which include a substantial amount of New York material, Revolutionary War, Shakers and books with statewide coverage.
