Vital Records Database

Donated by John Austin

This is a database of all the vital record information that John Austin has provided to this site, as well as many other vital records from sources that will not be posted (newspaper records, etc.).

It does not include other vital records that have been, or will be, posted by other donors/contributors.

This database contains over 4500 names!

Please note that these records represent a huge amount of time on the part of the donor, John Austin, of researching and compiling! He did this for his own private research many years ago and has provided this for posting online in order to help other individual researchers. If you find this resource useful, please give him credit in your work by using a citation! This work may not be copied, in part, or in full, for commercial use, without the permission of the author/donor.
