    Seeking vital statistics for free

    David Ryan Newbie

      Where can I get vital statistics for family for free?

          It would depend which type of vital records (birth, death, or marriage), which time period, and which state the events took place in.  Some records are available for certain time periods and states on familysearch.org.  A few state archives have some records available online.  Other states have few if any records available on-line and to obtain official copies would involve a fee.

            Hi David

            Welcome to History Hub




            familysearch.org is an "ALWAYS FREE" website, you just need to register to search. You can find SOME  birth, death, and marriage records there.

            Then there are the sights that give you a one time FREE trial , like Ancestry.com, they have some vital records and you might find vital records that other relatives have found and posted.

            Newspapers.com gives a one time FREE trial, you might find birth announcements and obituaries and marriages on there

            Some libraries let you search genealogy websites if you have a library card. Check with your local library.


            Good Luck in your search.
