|Historic Colonial and New York State Land Records|
|The OGS Bureau of Land Management is the descendant of a long history in the management of New York State's publicly-owned lands dating back nearly four centuries to when the Dutch West India Company created the Surveyor General's Office in 1642. As such, OGS holds a large collection of both current and historic records that are available for view by educators, researchers or other interested parties.
Listed below is a sample of items in this collection:
|*Private land sales that were recorded here in Albany and not necessarily in the County Clerk's office-late 1600s to early 1800s.|
