One Genealogist Can Make A Difference!

This is a fascinating (and inspiring) story of one genealogist (Brooke Schreier Ganz) and her fight to gain access to public records. Please read the full story at Public Records Access: One Genealogist Can Make A Difference!

Ms. Ganz is  seeking access to copies of the 1908-1929 index to marriage licenses and affidavits, a series originally kept by the New York City Clerk’s office, now stored at the NYC Municipal Archives.

In her story we see what dedication and perseverance can accomplish. In the end Brooke Schreier Ganz's fight will benefit all genealogists. The Power of One is amazing!

Brooke- Thank you for your perseverance. I, too, am researching that area (although I live in Arizona now). I never knew these records existed. Please keep us updated on your progress.
