There are almost 1,600 local government historians in New York State. The state historian law requires that a local historian is appointed in each city, town, village, or borough, and allows for the appointment of a historian in each county. APHNYS provides listings for all historians in the Empire State. The file is by region, then by county and then by municipality. You may search the PDF using [Ctrl] F.
