Upcoming Presentations

Friday January 15, 2021 starting at 7 pm – Jeanette Sheliga will be speaking on New York State Vital Records.

New York State can sometimes be described as a difficult place to research your ancestors in.  This program will teach you when modern Vital Records of Birth, Marriage, and Death began to be kept, the information they contain, where to locate them, and how to order copies of them.  Many examples of documents will be included along with indexes and where to find online record collections.  (This program will not include New York City as they have a separate Vital Records system.)
