Talk:United States Vital Records
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:
- (State) Vital Records - Civil Registration
- (State) Vital Records- Civil Registration
- (State) Vital Records-Civil Registration
- (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.
Marilyn Markham, Joan Healey, and Pat Hardesty
You are right about the term being incorrect for the United States. Why do you suppose that it was used in the first place on those pages? Are you three going to rename the pages? If you need any help, just let me know and I'd be glad to help with that.

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.
