Back in October 2009 I began the project of searching the New York State Vital Records Index for those with the surname Brewer or Brower. Compressed PDFs were posted to this webpage, which will become unavailable by June 2012. The original documents are now available as stand alone webpages (no longer compressed) and links can be found in the column to the right under "Brewer/Brower, New York State Vital Records Index." Unfortunately I have not had the time to add to these pages since last winter, and nothing new is being added with this post. I do hope to get back to them sometime during the coming winter months.
In addition to the lists of Brewers and Browers extracted from the indexes, there were compressed PDFs for a handful of death certificate that I had obtained. Once the old page (and website) are discontinued these certs will cease to be available online.
For background on these records, and how to obtain them, please see New York State Vital Records Index Information & Instructions.
