The Capital District Genealogical Society was organized in 1981.

The purpose of the Society is:

To teach members and other interested persons how to trace their family roots, lineage, or heritage;

To provide help to those seeking information via queries on relatives and/or family who in the past had connections to the Capital District and adjacent counties;

To educate the general public and membership by conducting special programs relevant to the purpose of the Society;

To coordinate the interests and concerns of persons and/or organizations throughout the Capital District area, New York State and the country in the development of information and resources to better serve the purpose of the Society, the membership and the public at large.

Access to NYC Vital Records Threatened

The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is proposing a new rule that would affect when birth and death records are made available to the public and transferred to the Department of Records and Information Services.

The proposed schedule would greatly lengthen the amount of time a birth or death record is restricted for public access.

This link from NYG&B is for more information and for how to take action:
