As per §57.09 of the NYS Arts and Cultural Affairs Law, all appointed local government historians “shall make an annual report, in the month of January, to the local appointing officer or officers and to the state historian of the work which has been accomplished during the preceding year.”
In an attempt to make this process easier, the New York State Historian has created an online form. The data produces a useful statistical abstract which are now shared annually.
Submitting the form automatically generates an email to the State Historian and to the submitting municipal historian, include the submitted information.
Municipal historians can submit the required report, adn contribute to an understanding of part of the New York State history community HERE.
