Save NYC vital records access: Why we all should act

New York City is trying to restrict access to important records, and we need you to act now to stop this from happening!

Even if you don't have New York City research interests, this is an important fight to join - other states and municipalities may follow suit if New York City is successful.To keep these historical records accessible to the millions who have New York ancestors, we need to mobilize quickly and act decisively.
