Hello,


Can anyone point me to any online source for a lawsuit that happened in 1913/14 in New York city? I'm looking for the outcome. This would have been a civil case.






I suspect there isn't one, but I thought I would take a chance and ask here.


Thanks!

You would probably have to contact the courthouse to get copies of the records. Alternatively, have you tried newspapers? Civil cases were often reported in the paper.

Try searching old digitized NYC newspapers at this free site:
www.fultonhistory.com


There may have been a notice in the paper.


You can search by name or other keywords.

If it was Manhattan than try this:


NY County Clerk's Office/ Division of Old Records
7th Floor
Municipal Archives
The Division of Old Records is at
31 Chambers Street,

open Tuesdays and Thursdays

646-386-5395


They have card catalogs of civil cases. My experience is that the case files (if they still exist) are kept off-site in a warehouse.

Have you tried finding the parties involved on old census records?


Federal census done every ten years, and NY State census in 1905, 1915, 1925.


Try searching at www.familysearch.org


If you want to post the names of the people than I'm sure some of us will try to find them on census, newspapers, etc.

Fulton History contains an amazing amount of information but can be tricky to navigate.

Hints on using it here:

Searching the Fulton History Newspaper Site - Cliff Lamere

You all are great! I know what I will be doing tomorrow.




I just discovered that my grandfather was previously married. I'm not even sure my dad knew that. So fascinating.
