February Meeting
Novel New York City Records

Saturday, February 8, 2020, 10:30 AM at the Bethpage Public Library.

Alec Ferratti will be highlighting new and unusual  New York City records.
Alec’s lecture will discuss records that are typically overlooked, either because they are not well-known, or because they are not thought to be genealogically relevant.  Examples include licensing records, court records, voter registrations, education records, and the 1917 Military Census.  Some of these records are available at the Municipal Archives or the City Clerk, while others reside with the agencies that created them, and are only accessible by making Freedom of Information Requests.  Ways to legally work around privacy restrictions will be discussed.

Assistance is available for beginning and advanced researchers in the auditorium lobby before the meeting. Please inquire at the sign-in desk.

We hope to see you there. Guests are always welcome.
