Ridgewood historical society focus of new database

The German Genealogy Group recently added a new database to its website, the Onderdonk House Biographical Index.

This database was created from the biographical index card file of the Greater Ridgewood Historical Society (GRHS), located at The Onderdonk House in Ridgewood, Queens. It includes references to births, baptisms, marriages, deaths, cemetery information, and other types of records. The dates covered by the database begin in 1590 and run through 2007.

If a researcher wants a photocopy or scan of a card found in the database, the first card is free, 2-10 cards are $5. If more cards are required, please request an estimate from GRHS. Instructions for ordering a photocopy or scan are available on the Germany Genealogy Group website.

To begin searching the database, go to: and click on Database Searches and then scroll down to Other NYC and Long Island. For more information on the Onderdonk House, go to:
