[VA] Virginia release Records
Great news from Ancestry!
On Thursday, May 28,2015, Ancestry placed on its website most of the post-1912 birth , marriage and death "open" vital records for Virginia. Vital records become "open " in Virginia after 100 years for births, and 25 years for deaths, divorces and marriages. This release of Virginia vital records was made possible as a result of legislation which Virginia Genealogical Society helped craft.
Birth (1864-1999 with images for 1864-1913),death(1912-2014 with images for 1912-1987) and marriage(1936-2014 with images for 1936-1988) records for Virginia are now available. Researchers should check Ancestry often for updates if a record cannot be found.
To quickly see the VA records, go to Card Catalog and select Updates.
