Finding Family in the Records of the NYC Municipal Archives

March 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

A image of a civic building with text over it that says Genealogy Research.

Interested in researching your family’s history in New York City? Join Ken Cobb, Assistant Commissioner of the NYC Department of Records and Information Services (DORIS) and Marcia Kirk, Archives and Research Associate, as you discover the rich NYC data that will help you in your research journey. They will review the archives’ Historical Vital Records collection with over 10 million digitized records and illustrate how to use the collection from home. You will also learn why these collections are so important to research and useful tips you can use in your research.

Furthermore, this year, the session will be held at the magnificent Surrogate’s Court building located in lower Manhattan at 31 Chambers Street. If you have not been here before, don’t miss the opportunity to see this impressive landmarked historic building. As soon as you enter, you will be mesmerized by the granite façade, marble interiors, and the beautiful mosaic tile ceiling.

We have limited seating, RSVP required!
