We've been busy adding more collections to help you with your family history research. Recently, we added collections from Arkansas, New York, and North Carolina, in addition to the completion of the 1940 census. All together, the total is more than 38.1 million records! Let's take a look at the new collections.
From Arkansas, we added Washington County marriage records. Washington County is located in northwest Arkansas, and the collection spans from 1845 to 1941. Each record includes the full names of the bride and groom, year, volume, page number, and an image of the original record. Be certain to look at the image, as this will often contain more information.
In addition, we added three new North Carolina collections:
From New York comes the New York Death Index, which covers deaths from 1957 to 1962 that occurred outside of New York City. Information includes the person's name, date of death, age, and gender. This collection contains more than 485,000 records.
Last, but certainly not least, are the additions we've made to the 1940 census index! All 50 states, plus the District of Columbia, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Panama Canal Zone, are complete! These records are available for free at archives.com/1940-census.
We are excited to bring these collections to the Archives.com community. We are continually adding new collections, so check this blog often for updates!
