Governing To Stop Publishing
In order for me to report on various items affecting access to records which we as genealogists need, I read many different newsletters, blog posts, Google alerts and more. One of the online newsletters I receive by email  is Governing which provides information and stories on US state and locality laws and regulations. Today they announced, like so many other publications, they are “discontinuing operations” this fall after 32 years of publishing. Today’s media environment has changed and more “traditional” types of communication can no longer afford to continue.  This is not the first publication to close and sadly it won’t be the last.

(UK) Changes in Registration of Marriage to Become Effective December 2, 2019
Earlier this year, the Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc.) Act passed into law and received Royal Assent in March 2019. This law made provisions for the extension of civil partnerships to same sex couples, to make a provision for a report on registration of pregnancy losses, still births and  provides for mother’s names to be included on marriage registers. The law also requires the Registrar General to maintain a register of marriages in England and Wales which is accessible in electronic format 

The Faculty Office is the Archbishop of Canterbury who has the power to grant all manner of licenses, etc. and is presided over the Master of the Faculties and its day to day administration is the responsibility of the Registrar. Those functions are now threefold: the issue of Special Marriage Licenses, the regulation of the Notarial profession and the legal work for the awarding by the Archbishop of “Lambeth” Degrees. In that capacity they have posted about the new law and its effective date for the General Registrar Office (GRO) to be ready with the new requirements. Representatives of the Faculty Office and the Legal Offices of the Church of England and Church in Wales have been in discussion with the General Register Office (GRO) about the proposed changes. The GRO has stated the new requirements will be in effect as of December 2 even though the Faculty Office believes there are number of unresolved issues.

The new system replaces Marriage Registers and Marriage Certificates (issued at the time of the wedding) with a Marriage Document prepared by the officiant. What is new, is that the married couple is now responsible for ensuring that the Marriage Document is deposited with the local Register Office within 7 days of the wedding date and the local Superintendent Registrar is then responsible for recording the details and issuing the Marriage Certificate.



To read more from the Faculty Office see:




You must register (its free) to do so. There are fees attached to purchasing records.  At the time of this posting I did not see any information regarding the December 2 changes.

Thank you to Peter Calver and Lost Cousins newsletter for informing us about this impending improvement for marriage records for England and Wales

The IAJGS Records Access Alert reported last April about Reclaim the Records suing the New York City Department of Health for public copies of all 1949-1968 NYC death certificates under the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL).  The 1949-1968 time frame for these records was requested as any other part of New York State the records would be available. This is the first attempt for records, not indexes.  They are also suing to strike down the NYC Department of Health regulation with the exceeding long embargo dates for birth 125 years  and death records 75 years. 

The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene response to the Reclaim the Recordslaw suit may be read at:

As reported on the Reclaim the Records website (See: first URL above) , New York City has responded-with a motion for dismissal.—they think the statute of limitations has passed. The difference is they are looking at when the regulation was first proposed not when it became effective. 
The Reclaim the Records response to the NYC Department of Health response to dismiss (above) may be read at:

(US-AZ) Arizona Court Rules Arizona Residents Have Right to Internet Privacy
The Arizona Court of Appeals  said Arizonans have n (Arizona) constitutional right to online privacy to prevent police from accessing one’s identity or home address from a third-party online—law enforcement requires a warrant.  The court ruled that the  Arizona constitution provides residents the right to privacy that goes beyond the Fourth amendment protection from unreasonable searches.

Presiding Judge Eppich wrote, "The third-party doctrine allows the government a peek at this information in a way that is the 21st-century equivalent of a trip through a home to see what books and magazines the residents read, who they correspond with or call, and who they transact with and the nature of those transactions… We doubt the framers of our state constitution intended the government to have such power to snoop in our private affairs without obtaining a search warrant."

Police and government agencies cannot obtain information about individuals  to Internet providers, which includes who they are and their home address– the gateway to finding out exactly who is posting material – without a search warrant. And that requires a showing of some criminal activity.

The Arizona ruling is a first time in the state as federal courts have consistently ruled that once people furnish that information to a third party, which in this case the company that provides Internet service, they have given up any expectation of privacy. And that means the Fourth Amendment protections of the U.S. Constitution against unreasonable search and seizure no longer apply and the government no longer needs a warrant. However, the court majority said the Arizona Constitution makes the federal court rulings in applicable.  The court also said the law will need to resolve this tension in such a way that everyone has the same expectation of privacy online.


Despite the court’s ruling they upheld the convictions of the appellant.
