In our neverending quest to acquire early vital records on microfilm for all the counties in Iowa, we have added county birth, marriage, and death records for Cedar, Clinton, Muscatine, Jackson, Union, and Louisa to our collections.
In Iowa, birth and death records were first collected in1880, while marriage records can begin as early as the 1830s, depending on the county. Most of the vital records microfilm available to us ends in the early 1900s—with the exception of Scott County, of course!
Please see our online catalog for details! (hint: type “County Name vital records” in the search window for the best results – for example, “Louisa County vital records” or “Jackson County vital records.”)
We are moving steadily west in pursuit of these resources, so please check back with us often!
