American military history in New York started with the establishment of the colonial militia early on in the seventeenth century typically to battle to prevent assaults from native inhabitants. The benefits and value of New York military records in family history research for ancestors that were veterans are obvious but New York military records can also be valuable to researchers whose primary ancestors were not soldiers in any war. Mainly because of the volume of genealogical details covered in quite a few New York military pension records they should not be overlooked during the research process.
