Re: Finding Vital Records in the United States #general

Chuck Weinstein added some good information about New York City vital
records to the discussion about finding USA vital records. I do
believe, however, that he may be incorrect in saying that: "There is
no published index for births occurring after 1910 in New York City."

In fact, FamilySearch has microfilmed the indexed records. While they
have not yet digitized and posted these online, a finding aid for the
NYC birth record indices is online at
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/1295570?availability=Family%20History%20Library

In the USA (and several other countries) one may borrow these films
from the Family History Library for viewing at any affiliated local
facility.

The finding aid (they also have them for NYC death and marriage
records) provides the film numbers where the indices are published.
The indices for births and deaths goes through 1965. Marriages through
1937. I blogged about this last spring:

Warren Blatt has also provided an InfoFile on JewishGen that provides
the Family History Library film numbers for both indices and
certificates, themselves.
