Part 2 - Research in Albany with The New York Genealogical & Biographical Society


The recent research conference with the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society was not only a chance for camaraderie and research, but it was the opportunity for a mini vacation.  Despite having grown up in Central New York, I had never been to Albany. I was struck by its combination of old and new architecture. Here is a picture of St. Peter's Episcopal Church:




Here's a shot of the New York State Capitol Building:



And here are some photographs of Empire State Plaza:




There are also many striking memorials on Empire State Plaza:

New York State Emergency Medical Services Memorial

New York State Fallen Firefighters Memorial

And there are numerous sculptures on the Plaza as well:
