NY State Equal Rights Guide

New York State has put out a new travel guide that highlights the State’s equal rights accomplishments and historic places to visit to learn more about them. The guide is separated into these sections:

  1. Abolitionists and African-American History
  2. Suffragists and the Birth of the Women’s Rights Movement
  3. Human Rights Destinations
  4. General Tourist Places

In 1917 New York became one of the first states to grant women the right to vote. The centennial of that event is being celebrated all over the State this year.

So if you are planning a genealogy trip this summer, you can also add some historic destinations to your travel itinerary.
