Topic: The History of the Geography of New York City

Speaker: Dr. Steve Morse

New York City has undergone numerous changes to its geographical boundaries over the years. An understanding of these boundaries is important in order to know what archive to search when looking for vital records. This talk shows the changes to New York City's geography and describes the difference between New York City and the City of New York. The origin of the counties and their changing boundaries, along with the early geographies of Brooklyn and Queens, are presented. Finally, the consolidation of 1898 that created the City of New York and defined the five boroughs is discussed.

Steve Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from IAJGS, the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, the first ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce from Polish genealogical societies. In his other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research, development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical papers, and written four textbooks and holds four patents.
