    Reference Guide: Family Relationships    




           
    Reference Guide: Vital Records Dates Vital records (i.e., Birth, Marriage, and Death Records) were officially kept at the state and county level
    at different times in different states. This makes it critically important that you know when the state
    you’re searching started to keep records (otherwise, you risk wasting time).
