Finding vital records in the United States

Birth, marriage and death records are kept by the States. Each state has different dates when they began keeping records and how to access the records. Records are also kept on a county level. Churches also kept birth, marriage and death records.

Newspapers listed dates that marriage licenses were granted and announced marriages. Sometimes families announced a birth of their child. Obituaries often told about the person’s live, information about the funeral and the burial.
