Georgia, Indiana, New Jersey and Tennessee. What do these states have in common? All have new vital records collections on Archives.com! We recently launched 3.6 million birth, marriage, and death records for these states. Let's take a look at these seven collections.

Georgia researchers have three new collections. Georgia, Death Index covers 1914-1927. Information varies by record, but can include name, gender, date and place of birth, marital status, spouse's name, race, age, date and place of death, date and place of burial, and parents' names. There are two new marriage collections. Georgia, Early Marriage Index covers 1786-1850, while Georgia, Marriage Index includes 1699-1944.

Do you have ancestors from the Hoosier State? Your ancestors might be in two new collections: Indiana, Birth Index (1880-1920) and Indiana, Death Index (1882-1920). These indexes, compiled originally as a WPA project back in the 1930s, are considered standards in Indiana research.

Marriages in New Jersey are easier to find, thanks to the New Jersey, Marriage Records collection, which covers 1683-1802.

Tennessee researchers will find Tennessee, Death and Burial Index useful. This collection covers 1874-1955. Information varies by record, but can include detailed information, including parents' names.
