Time is running out… at 5pm on Monday April 23rd, the New York City Board of Health closes the comment period on the pending amendment to the NYC vital records access policy.
If you’re not aware, here’s some background from the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society:
I’ve updated a 2015 (originally published in 2013) JRG post on accessing vital records in New Jersey:
Yes, unfortunately, obtaining vital records can be a challenge in New Jersey if you don’t know where to start your search. On March 3, 1848 New Jersey passed “An ACT relating to the registry and returns of births, marriages, and deaths, in the state of New Jersey” which required town clerks to annually submit a certified copy of births, marriages and deaths that occurred in their jurisdictions. This law created a wonderful set of records, we as genealogists, use to solidify our family branches, twigs and roots.
The Ukrainian History and Education Center (UHEC) is proud to announce the first-ever virtual event for Ukrainian genealogy. Nashi Predky (Our Ancestors), the family history group of the UHEC, will be hosting their 2018 Spring Workshop virtually on Saturday, March 17th.
Since the group’s formation in 2013, all of the workshops and annual conferences have been held at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Somerset, New Jersey. This year, the committee is excited to offer this event to fellow researchers who may not be able to travel for an in-person event.
As busy genealogists, we often head out to our local or not so local meetings to learn about a new topic or meet up with old friends. And sometimes, I don’t always do a good job at letting fellow genealogists and friends know when I’ll be in their neighborhood. With that in mind, here are upcoming events where I’d love to catch-up with my followers.
The Sussex County Historical Society announced their cemetery tour has been rescheduled to Saturday, November 4th.
