Last week I spoke to a DAR group and we discussed the topic of vital record alternatives. Through that talk I discussed some websites that I find useful and thought I would share them here. I also based the handout on two articles I wrote for the WorldVitalRecords newsletter. You can find those two articles, 40 Places to Find Vital Records Information, here and here.
