Re: NY City 1926 Birth Cert.- Can't Get???
Sorry I miss read the date.I haven't written to Worth Street (I'm assuming that is were you are writing) for certificates.I usually have to write to Chambers Street.
Please look at http://www.vitalcheck.com/http://www.vitalcheck.com/ click on NY and then look at Albany.Albany has the records for all counties.The will send death and birth certificates for genealogy research.You should write or call them first to see if it's too early to get a certificate that is 75 years old.I know they don't release death certificates for 75 years unless you are a direct desendent.
I would not request the certificate through Vitalcheck, it's too much money for Albany ($15.00 plus $8.95 postage).I have used Vitalcheck for certificates and they have been great.But it would be cheaper to send the $15.00 with a stamped self addressed enevlope.Note: It will take 6 months before you receive the certificate.
Again, Good luck
