As a result of the two year collaboration between Ancestry.com and the Virginia Department of Health, the records are now digitized and indexed.

The final digital, scanned documents are available through Ancestry.com. The indexed information of the records can be accessed for free via the Division of Vital Records of VDH and websites of the Library of Virginia.

Records that have not yet reached the legal time for release are available in a limited index. The information in the index includes names, dates and locations. The records that are now being released include marriage records from 1936, divorce records from 1918, and birth and death records from 1912.

These records are listed and linked in today’s Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org Updates and Additions post.
