Birth, marriage and death records in the United States will be examined to show how much information is available in them. The history of when they began to be recorded in various places and the depth of the information in them over time will be discussed. The recording of vital statistics was most often done at the time the event occurred, which means the information is often of high accuracy. However, problems with accuracy will be explored.

The various administrative levels (municipal, county, and state) at which these records were kept and the repositories (archives and libraries) where they may now be found will be described. Published vital records will also be discussed. Suggestions for using the Internet for researching vital statistics records will be provided.

The objectives of this course include:

  • Understanding the creation of vital records in the United States
  • Locating vital records in the United States
  • Evaluating information in these records
  • Creating a research plan based on availability of records
  • Securing documents needed to prove your family lineage
