      Hello Betty,
      Please go to: Then follow the directions on the right hand side of the page to create your free New York account. The instructions state: “For free access to New York records, start your search then click on your results. You will be prompted to “Create a Free Account.” DO NOT click on the “Subscribe” button or the “14-day Free Trial Offer” unless you are interested in access to all of Ancestry.”
      So you must first conduct a search in order to create your account. Happy Hunting!
