If you have New York ancestors, The Advancing Genealogist has a new resource for you!
In September 2018, Judy Russell, The Legal Genealogist, discovered that the website Manhattan Past was no longer accessible. The loss meant that a list of links to New York state session laws was in peril. Judy found part of the missing site on the Wayback Machine, a component of Internet Archive. However, a number of the archived links there do not work.
I have intended to expand my online law library, and Judy’s post gave me the motivation to add links to New York’s laws to my site. Like any project, it took on a life of its own, and the end result was a much larger collection of New York session laws and other materials than that which was lost.
UPDATE 3.29.19: Also see my new Historic New York Case law page.
