Scope and Content Note

This series consists of archival copies of the official Web site of Senator Hugh T. Farley. Researchers should note that in 2009, each Senator was allotted space on the main Senate Web site and the official sites of individual Senators were removed from the live Web.

B2218-06: This accretion consists of a copy of Senator Farley's official site produced on December 20, 2006, shortly before Governor George E. Pataki (1995-2006) left office. It contains biographical information, press releases (2000-2006), photographs, and information about energy conservation and other issues of interest to Senator Farley's constituents. A district map, a "Kids Korner" page containing information about the Senate, and a quiz focusing on the history of the communities represented by Senator Farley are also included.

B2218-08: This accretion consists of a copy of Senator Farley's official site produced on June 13, 2008, shortly after the resignation of Governor Eliot L. Spitzer (2007-2008). It contains biographical information, press releases (2008), photographs, and information concerning veterans' benefits and other subjects of interest to Senator Breslin's constituents. A district map, a "Kids Korner" page containing information about the Senate and the history of the communities represented by Senator Farley, and a local history quiz are also included.

Researchers should note that, owing to the structure of the live site and the limitations of Web archiving technology, most of the information contained within this site could not be captured properly. In addition, some of the navigational links do not work properly. However, identical sets of navigational links appear at the top and the bottom of each page. If the link in one set does not work correctly, click the Web browser's Back button and then click on the corresponding link in the other set.
