AZ Web Site Helps Families Search For Roots

A genealogy web site is helping people quickly find historical Arizona birth and death records, and is saving the state money at the same time.

There have been nearly 3.5 million visits since the site went online last February.

Before the web site was available, state employees had to search manually for records.

It cost three dollars per request, and people waited weeks for the documents.

Now it's quick and it's free.

The Arizona Department of Health Services says, by law, birth certificates become public after 75 years, and death certificates become public after 50 years.

 

If you're tracing your family's roots, you now may search by name forArizona birth certificates between 1887 and 1929, and Arizona death certificates between 1878 and 1954.
