Places of Birth - Places of Marriage

Postby jfackerson » Tue May 27, 2008 9:11 am

Following 2 US Government sites have recently been updated.

I recommend these to Assistant Clerks for Membership Records.

Many of our new members were born outside US of America.

On-line search features are easy to use.

Good resource. However as far as I can tell, the second one only lists current names, not historical names. That can be a problem when dealing with things like birth dates.

I don't have any way of testing the first resource.
