Good News for NYC Researchers
I don't usually post every new collection that comes online (or news of every state closing records access). However, I sympathize with the woes of NYC genealogists. I usually have to deal with records that were never created or were destroyed. How frustrating to know the records were kept and still exist but not be allowed to use them! Here's a small victory for genealogists in the form of marriage record indexes. You can read more details, get links, and learn more about the "history" of this records access battle in Upfront with NGS, the blog for the National Genealogical Society. This is a great blog for news about U.S. genealogy, consider following it if you aren't already.
