Vital Records - Review

Vital Records

In the past few years, I've dabbled a bit in private investigation. I spent long ours researching vital records, looking for information my clients required. The problem was, I was spending so much time researching vital records, I found I was cutting deeply into my profit margin.

Sure, there is a lot to be found in vital records on the internet, but it is extremely time consuming. These public records are generally provided y government agencies whose bureaucracy generally makes a real chore to find the information you need.

Finally, I found, a member site charging a small one time fee to give you access to all these government records under one roof. Within minutes, I was searching court records, death certificates, court records and more while sitting in the comfort of my own home. Not only that, I was cutting down on the time I spent researching by about 10 fold!

I'm also into genealogy, tracking down the history of my family members. Before signing up with, I had no idea how helpful this site would be in helping me track down past family history. It opened doors I previously thought impossible.

I've tried a couple of record search sites in the past, but was rather disappointed in their quality and expense. Some of them charge you a monthly fee, leading you to believe it's a low one time payment until it's too late and you notice the charges coming out of your credit card every month. (watch carefully for that ploy!!) charges one reasonable charge for access to their servers. I recommend them highly over some of the other less trustworthy sites.

Vital Records

Vital Records

Vital records are birth, marriage and death records that can give you much more information than just names and dates.

Even if you are new to genealogy, you should be familiar with vital records. It's a general term used for birth, marriage and death records. These documents are the foundation for any genealogy study.

These records can provide a lot more than just a name and a date. Depending on the region you are searching, you will find more or less information. Standardization of what is collected for the records does not exist.

On a birth registration, you'll probably find the parents' names and maybe even their occupations. You may find the specific location of the birth and the name of the participating doctor. Discovering the nme of the family doctor may be helpful in investigating family health issues.

Marriage records an provide even more information. The full names of the bride and groom, location of the marriage, parents of the bride and groom as well as other information may have been collected.

Death records can be a bit sparse. Full name and age, with date and place of death are the basic details. Cause of death can be interesting, especially if you are curious about any inherited health conditions.

Finding these records can help put together the puzzle of an ancesters life.
