Welcome to the Genealogy Federation of Long Island website. The Federation is comprised of 11 local genealogy organizations.
Our organizations assist researchers in various topics including general family history research and tracing specific ethnic or geographic origins. The Federation itself does not offer an individual membership, but we encourage researchers to join at least one of our member organizations.
The Federation presents genealogy programs at local public libraries and publishes a monthly calendar listing the meetings of its member organizations. This calendar is distributed to the public libraries in Nassau and Suffolk counties, as well as published on this website.
In addition, the Federation has coordinated the indexing of a variety of records of Nassau and Suffolk counties, New York City, and the National Archives New York City branch.
