Naming of state vital records pages

All state vital records pages are not titled the same way. Do the state vital records pages need to be titled consistency? If the pages are named the same way, will that increase the ability to search for and find the pages? Please add your comments about the four different ways state pages are titled and your opinion about the need to rename the pages for consistency:

  1. (State) Vital Records - Civil Registration
  2. (State) Vital Records- Civil Registration
  3. (State) Vital Records-Civil Registration
  4. (State) Vital Records

Thank you!  Franjensen

I think that #1 might be the best choice to keep the titles consistent.

United States doesn't have Civil Registration, we believe it would cause confustion. The term is incorrect for the  United States. We vote for Number 4 and we will proceed to that end. The record offices are still called Vital Records.

Links for individual states

This link should probably go on a page about the individual states divorces rather than the main page for vital records. I didn't want to lose it, so I put it here for safe keeping until that page could be made.
