Interesting news. New York City court records dating as early as 1674 are being sent to the state archives for better care (and maybe better public availability). Thanks for sharing it.

But as someone whose post-1674 colonial ancestry in New York is outside of New York City, I'd appreciate if you titled (or tagged) this question to identify the topic as "New York City." (There's a lot of New York outside the city.) :-)
I should've caught that! My wife is from Long Island. And I have the same colonial ancestors.

I just copied the title from Extreme Genes.
Thanks! (I clicked first on the New York Times article.)
