Official Vital Record-Keeping by State & Date

Vicki’s note – shared by Legacy User Support Group member https://www.facebook.com/groups/LegacyUserGroupLegacyfamilytree.com  is the family tree software program site that I use – free and paid versions.  Hint – each state started officially keeping vital records at different dates.  You will have to look elsewhere for records of birth, marriage, and death before those dates.  For example, Illinois did not require uniform recording of marriage records until 1962!  I will also add this to Genealogy Links and Electronic Helps page under “States”:
