Sample Documents

On this page I have compiled a collection of examples of birth, marriage and death certificates as well as census and others.
It is not by no means a complete list of available documents. In the next few months I hope to scan and add more to this list. 

By studying the document it will show you what information you can expect to find if you have this kind of record for your own ancestor.
  After you open the image in a browser window you can right-click on it and save it so you can open it in an image viewer.

Please let me know if I can help you locate any of these records for your ancestors.
