Ancestry uploads detailed BMD indexes for New York

Ancestry has added three BMD Indexes for New York to its collection, and they're going to be very useful to those with Irish emigrants in their family. Although 'only' indexes, the level of detail provided for each entry is a genealogical delight. See the image below, from the death index. Who needs the certificate?

Collectively, these three record sets hold more than 14million entries. Ancestry has provided good information about the resources, dates of coverage and geographical coverage, and how to obtain certifiates.

These are the record sets:

Births index 1866-1909

Marriage licenses 1908-1910, 1938-1940

Deaths Index to death certificates, 1862-1948
