In recent years, genealogy has become one of the world’s most popular hobbies. Countless people around the world are actively engaged in some form of family research. Whether it’s to satisfy a curiosity about oneself, provide children with a sense of who their ancestors were or to compile a medical history, people are trying to get in touch with their roots.

And for those whose search leads them to the Town of Oyster Bay, these early vital records might just provide that piece of information about your ancestor you’ve been seeking.
