New Voices of Genealogy Release: Henry B. Hoff, CG, FASG, FGBS “Becoming a Genealogist”




From guest editor, Arlene V. Jennings

The National Genealogical Society is pleased to announce the August celebration of the 100th anniversary of the NGSQ with the release of Henry B. Hoff’s story of “Becoming a Genealogist.”

One of five editors featured in the Voices of Genealogy series, Hoff is distinguished for his role in editing two of the nation’s leading genealogical journals. He served as trustee editor of The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record (with Harry Macy as associate editor) from 1986 to 1998 and as consulting editor from 1998 to 2001 (with Harry Macy as editor). In 2001 he became editor of the New England Historic Genealogical Register. His contributions to New York genealogy are enormous, particularly in his writings on Long Island families and early Dutch families in New York. He is noted also for his studies on families of the West Indies.

In recognition of his achievements, Henry B. Hoff was named a fellow of the American Society of Genealogists in 1979 and of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society in 1993. He first earned the certified genealogist credential in 1979.
