Colorado Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In Colorado, someone must certify your name and relationship to the person's birth record you are requesting a copy of before you can get one. This means that although you can get what you need, it may take a little time. Although Colorado birth certificates are among the vital records that can only be accessed by family members, these have been archived since 1900, so the chances of the state having the record you need-even if it is quite old-is very likely. The state has been archiving public records such as birth certificates for over a hundred years, and accessing any one of them is as easy as contacting the vital records department of Colorado. For Death Records Colorado has only been archiving death certificates since the 1900s. Any earlier inquiry needs to go directly to the county in question. The most important thing to realize is that not just anyone can get a copy of a death certificate. Although it is a matter of public record and can be accessed by anyone, only family members can get any kind of proof of this data. If you need to get a copy of a deceased relative's vital records, you will need to certify your relationship to them with the vital records board of Colorado. For Obituaries Colorado is a beautiful place to call home and it is a growing retirement destination for people all over the United States. This means that the number of Colorado obituaries over the last few years has skyrocketed. Luckily, many local newspapers, libraries and community groups have put these listings online so people from anywhere in the world can find the listing they are searching for. For instance, if you are looking for very old listings from as far back as 1859, you may want to start with the Colorado Historic Newspaper Collection website. Their database is fully searchable and free to use. Colorado obituary records can also be found through the Colorado Clues website, as well as through a huge database maintained by the Denver Public Library. The library database offers listings from as far back 1939. If you are searching for Jefferson County listings, the Foothills Genealogical Society has an online database you can search. Kit Carson County also has an online searchable database through the Colorado State Archives. Finally, the Summit County listings are available through the local historical society. Finding the listings you are looking for here is simple as long as you know where to start your search. For Marriages The Colorado state vital records board has marriage licenses filed between 1900 and 1939, and 1975 to the present, but for any records between 1940 and 1974, you will need to contact the county in which the marriage license was filed.
