World Vital Records Databases

World Vital Records continues to add significant online databases to their offerings each week. In recent weeks, they have added:

1) Gazetteers from Massachusetts, West Virginia, Texas, Maryland, Delaware, England and Wales

2) Pioneer Ghosts of Kentucky: Comprehensive Name Index of the Dickey Diary series

3) Databases containing vital records from Canada (and here too) - baptisms, marriages and burials

The links are to posts on the WorldVitalRecords blog which announced the record availability. In each blog post are links to the databases themselves.

While WorldVitalRecords is a commercial genealogy database site, they permit FREE access to new databases for 10 days after they are announced. It is a good idea to subscribe to their free newsletter that announces the new databases. You can sign up for it here.

Note that I am not a subscriber to WVR or an employee.
