New York City (The Five Boroughs) Birth Name Search Service

One of the most frequent requests that we receive is for looking up birth names in the NYC Birth Index. We now have someone who is willing to do this and has started a new service for just that purpose.

Joyce Ames of Manhattan is starting a new service for those who were born in one of the five boroughs of NYC (Kings (Brooklyn), Bronx, Queens, Manhattan or Richmond (Staten Island). This is NOT a free service, but her fees are very reasonable. You will not only receive your birthname, but she will also document on what book and page she found your information in case you need verification at a later date.

Please contact Joyce directly at for her fee and to ask any other questions that you may have.

This new service is fully endorsed by our NY Adoption List and by me, Sylvia Ackerson, the NY Adoption List Owner.
