A team of U.S. and Canada reference consultants are in the process of adding a template (format) to each of the states vital records pages.  SEE the state of Alabama-Vital Records to learn where the reference consultants hope to take each state vital records page.

If you meant "Record Type of United States", then it is going to blow up without any parameters. It could apply to every type of records. It needs to be defined more clearly.  Otherwise, if it is "Place Template", this is relatively new with bugs worked out just over a week ago. dsammy 16:52, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Under reference #2, the following link for digital version at Google doesn't work:

The Colonial Laws of New York from the Year 1664 to the Revolution, (Albany, NY: James B. Lyon, State Printer, 1894), p. 19. Digital version at Google Books

Please correct this link so that this article may be considered for a featured article.

Regarding NYS adoption:

Surely, NYS adoption laws have changed over time. However, I am not an attorney. How have the laws changed and how are records obtained for those various legal eras? I am most interested in early 1874, but I'm sure that others will be interested in other eras. (I understand that under the current law, records are "sealed", meaning, I believe, that they are not available to the public for any reason.)
