Genealogy, 1795-1948 


Vital records (birth, death, and marriage certificates), census, and city directories.

Genealogy is the number one hobby in America. Birth, death, and marriage certificates are often the first step in researching the family tree. For the estimated 75% of American families who have ancestors who once lived in, or passed through, New York City, the Archives is a mandatory stop on the research trail.
