Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.

Postcards collected by former Village Historian Vincent F. Seyfried
Verne Morton’s photography concentrated on the day-to-day activities of the residents of Groton and the surrounding area. With his cumbersome glass plate view camera and tripod, Morton took remarkable photographs of farm life, family activities, and children in school and at play.
Photographs, sketches, and other images from the Manlius Historical Society's most popular reference collection, including street scenes of the early village and portraits of notable residents.
The collection includes records documenting the people, places, and events of the Village of Voorheesville and to a lesser extent the Town of New Scotland.
