There are almost 1,600 local government historians in New York State. The state historian law requires that a local historian is appointed in each city, town, village, or borough, and allows for the appointment of a historian in each county.

APHNYS provides listings for all historians in the Empire State, and has divided the state into twelve regions.  This list is by region, then by county and then by municipality.
