Delaware Archives Makes Death, Birth & Marriage Certificates Available Online

Officer Haynes was a constable in Clayton when he was murdered in 1900

The Delaware Public Archives recently entered into a partnership with www.ancestry.com to make the First State’s birth, death and marriage records available online.  The digital collections include births up to 1908, marriages up to 1933, and deaths up to 1933.  In the future, naturalization (1796-1950), and land records (1677-1947) and will books (1683 to 1947) will be available.  It’s a very helpful group of easily accessible records and I just had a chance to pull up some images of the original documents and certificates.  Check it out when you need Delaware records from these sources.  As part of the agreement, the records are available for Delaware residents with a library card for free through the local library’s website.
