Find Genealogy Records

We look forward to the day when all genealogy records are digitized and available online. But we've got a long way to go, and unfortunately not every record can be found in Archives.com's databases (or anyone elses).

  • Some records have been lost to fire or disaster
  • Some records are waiting to still be scanned into computers
  • Some records are transcribed by HAND and are not currently imputed
  • Some government agencies won't allow the records to be published
  • Some records are too sensitive to release to the public

But whatever the reason, just because a record isn't available online doesn't mean that you can't find it! We've assembled instructions, pre-filled paperwork, and tried to make it easy for you to get the files. Use the links below to learn how you can get your records.
