NYG&B: New NYC Birth, Marriage, & Death Records Online

In late February 2020, Ancestry.com added three new collections of New York City vital record indexes. These new indexes are separate entities from the already-existing indexes on the website - this means there are now multiple New York City vital record indexes on Ancestry.com. 

The new indexes are particularly exciting because their entries contain very detailed information. Other indexes contain little more than the name, date of event, and certificate number - but as you will see below, entries in these new collections have extracted far more information from each certificate. For further information, visit the NYG&B Blog.
