Searching the GGG Indexes
For more than a decade, volunteers have helped digitize indexes to databases for millions of New York City and Long Island records, including births, deaths, marriages, and naturalizations. These indexes are available for free on the websites of the German Genealogy Group and the Italian Genealogical Group. Don Eckerle, who has been one of the movers and shakers guiding this project, will describe many of these databases and give hints on searching them successfully.
