Databases:  Vital Records:

The Pre-1907 Vital Records Indices are compilations of births, marriages and deaths that occurred prior to 01 Oct 1907.  Before that date, it was not mandatory that vital events be recorded or reported to the state or county officials.  Therefore, because this law did not go into effect until 01 Oct 1907, some of the vital records events were never properly recorded.  If you do not find a name within the indices on these pages, it probably was due to this fact. 

The indices within these pages are typed exactly as the state has recorded them.  No attempt has been (nor will be) made to change history by making corrections in spelling or dates.  It is suggested to attempt to use different spelling variations when seeking records.  You will find that several of the records have either question marks (?) or a notation that reads "(unknown)".  These records were either unreadable or not fully reported.  Please keep this in mind when using the indices within these pages.   Should you find a record that you would like to obtain, a link to "how to purchase a copy" will be provided on each page.
