If anyone needs assistance with look ups and retrievals in New York City at the
Municipal Archives, Manhattan probate court, or the NY Public Library, I am will
be back there this coming Friday and will have a little time available to help
What I can do is retrieve or read and transcribe vital records that you have
identified while I am at the NYC Municipal Archives or assist with various other
records >from around New York City..
The Archives holds:
NYC births through 1909
NYC Deaths through 1948
NYC marriages both Health Department and City Clerk through 1949
Generally what I do is retrieve the files you have identified but can not access
on your own. I can buy copies $11 each at the Archives or take notes and email you.
(No photos the Archives does not permit that.)
Also if you have a "maybe" file I can look at it and compare it against your
information, example to see if the parent's names are what you expected, so save
buying something only to find it it is the wrong person.
I do appreciate a few dollars to help offset my expenses when I do this plus any
Email me off list if you are interested and we can discuss what I can do.
Always happy to offer advice or comments about NYC area research and the tricks of
