Summary
"The Municipal Archives, operated by the New York City Department of Records and Information Services, holds world class collections, although that is not well-known. With the publication of this guide to the New York City Municipal Archives, spearheaded by the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, the secret will be out. Patrons who have so eagerly accessed the vital records will learn about dozens of other collections that may provide details of family and community history. This guide, authored by Aaron Goodwin, with the assistance of Assistant Commissioner Ken Cobb, explores the richness of the Municipal Archives and shows how collections, beyond the vital records, can be used to develop more nuanced histories"--From foreword by Pauline Toole.
