The Indiana Commission on Public Records and Ancestry.com have announced an agreement to digitize 13 million birth certificates, death certificates and marriage records. The birth and death records go back to the early 1900’s and the marriage records date from 1958-2005.
The records older than 75 years will start becoming available in 2015 and be completed in 2016- the centennial of Indiana.
The records will be available on Ancestry.com where they will be available by subscription. After three years the records will be available free through the state archives.
