MyHeritage Added 3 Important Collections From New York City

I received this from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage today:


I am thrilled to announce that MyHeritage has published three essential vital record collections from New York City. These collections are some of the most important vital records in the U.S. available online today, and MyHeritage is the only genealogy company that hosts the index for these records with scanned images.

The collections contain a total of 37.4 million records and include a complete index created by MyHeritage alongside beautifully scanned color images of the original certificates and licenses. These collections are particularly valuable due to the fact that the index contains not only the primary individuals listed in the record, but also secondary individuals. For example, while most indexes list only the bride and groom in a marriage record, our team went the extra mile to index their parents as well. This significantly expands the number of records you might find when searching for a given ancestor.

New York City has played a pivotal role in the story of the United States as a nation and in the personal stories of countless American families. Family history enthusiasts with any American roots at all are likely to make significant finds in these collections.

Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and have received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.  I am a subscriber to Family Tree Webinars and love it.
