Death of John Martino -- thanks to him we have free indexes to NYC records

As a long time volunteer myself, I just received the news of John's death on November 30. He had tirelessly led a large team of volunteers who created databases for many NYC b-m-d and other records. If you visit the NYC municipal archives, they direct you to as the only comprehensive index to the records held in the archive. Many researchers around the country have benefited from the work of this organization and the FREE information contained in them.

If you have used these records, you might want to send a contribution in his honor to help with postage and database costs and / or volunteer to help in their ongoing projects.

You can volunteer for future projects to be done at home with Mark Waldron at
