State Records and Ancestry.com

Some states have an agreement with Ancestry.com. The state gives Ancestry access to one or more record collections and Ancestry puts them online. The state announces access to these records is free but only to its residents. Since many club members have their primary residence elsewhere I thought this might be of interest.

State agencies I’ve found that have this arrangement are:

These records are all available via our Ancestry subscription at the club rooms but signing up this way gives you access anywhere, though just to the state records. Other states might have the same arrangement; if you’re interested in another, ask Google. And this is ongoing; Indiana has agreed, for example, but won’t be online until next year.
