But wanted to be sure those who needed the New York connections could see it.

For me, it was not that great of news. I already have a membership in Ancestry and generally go through what they have, then FamilySearch.org, then look for state archives and local history sites, like GenWeb. So the New York stuff online seems to already be available at Ancestry which saves me work, but doesn't give me another place to look.
