First of all-let me tell you that you should have posted a new message-not as part of this "string". I too am looking into my family tree. The Advance will not help you. The St. George Library has back issues on microfilm, but you have to do the hunting yourself. NYC vital records can also be very frustrating. You should first try the birth indexes at the 42nd St. library or at the LDS Family History Centers before going to the expense of ordering birth certificates.
