This index is an electronic index for the years 1895 to 1970. It is not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records. This index is not complete for any particular place or region.

* A county or state vital record registration

These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:
+
* They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
+
* They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.
+
 
+
The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.
