Arkansas Vital Records Information

AccessGenealogy Web Site

Anyone with ties to the Frisco Rail Road will want to check out Frisco RR employment records which were rescued as they were on their way to the landfill in the 1970's as the railroad was changing their method of record keeping.
These files range from 1895 - WWII with approx. 250 names now posted, and nearly 100 more to come. If you find a relative, the page owner will "pass these papers on to you" for simple fee of postage & handling. (This information was posted to the ARNEVADA Mailing List by Kathleen Burnett, Administrator of the list.)

Thanks to Jo Autry, some civil war locations:
Civil War research, this has a large amount of data and links to other sites.
This is a very good Civil War page.

Primitive Baptist Library Website From: Robert L Webb
Thu, 7 Nov 2002 13:36:59
For about two years we have been working an on extensive website with history of Primitive Baptist Churches, county by county, in over thirty states, across the northern, eastern and western tier of our country. Some of these states have only sketchy information, others (such as Illinois and Iowa) are quite detailed, with lists of surnames of members which have been taken from our database of members, which now has nearly 40,000 entries. About half of these names are for Illinois.
To view our website, Primitive Baptist Churches
We would be grateful for any assistance anyone can give us as we try to preserve our heritage, by obtaining and preserving old church records, association minutes, historical sketches, biographical sketches of ministers, photos, etc.
We have very limited staff, volunteer, but will do our best to respond as time permits.

Original Marriage Certificates
Posted Mon, 13 Mar 2000 05:31:23

Texarkana USA Genealogical Society has in its possession more than 9,000 Original Marriage Certificates for marriages in Bowie County TX and 2,000 + Originals for Miller County AR. The majority of them are from about 1889 to 1935. A few older, some more recent. The Miller County are indexed by both Groom and Bride. The Bowie County are indexed by Groom only. Currently, we are working to index these by Bride as well but it will take a while longer.
They can be obtained a low cost, a SASE and a short lineage chart showing your relationship to the individuals.
If you had relatives who married in either of these counties in this time frame, I will be happy to check for availabilty of their certificates. If we have them, you will be notifed on where to send your information so that it will reach the proper person. Will also notify you if they are not available.
We would love to get all of these Certificates placed in the hands of family members as they would be a great addition to your family records. Please feel free to forward this mail to any list to which you subscribe.
Thanks, Doris Lindblad, Hstryhntr2@aol.com
