The FHC is currently closed due to COVID. Meanwhile, we are offering free one-on-one family history instruction via Zoom. <br>[https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=19889867 Sign up for a free appointment here.]<br>
Due to copyright agreements, the Zoom session cannot give remote access to the Family History Center computers or the NYC vital records, but our staff will be happy to teach you how to research your family tree.

<br>*'''New York City Vital Records''' While most FamilySearch records can be viewed at home, some can only be viewed in a Family History Center. This includes New York City birth records up to 1909, marriage records up to 1939, and death records up to 1949.*'''Computers''' Eight touch-screen computers are available first come, first served. No appointment needed (or accepted), but we have never turned anyone away. If needed, we may limit research time to two hours.*'''Microfilm''' Before the internet, much of the data now found in FamilySearch was available on millions of roles of microfilm. FamilySearch has been digitizing 1000 roles of microfilm each day and making the information available online. The process is scheduled to be completed in 2020. Meanwhile, we have over 2,300 microfilms on site, of which 736 have not been digitized as of 20 December 2019.
