Outback Family History
Legislation has been introduced by Senator Miramont regarding indices to certificates and records of marriage, intentions to marry, domestic partnerships and death including fetal death from 1892 to the present to be open to the public without restrictions. Indices to certificates and records of birth are to be open at the municipal and state levels after 75 years from the date of birth.
The bill also requires the state registrar to enter into a long-term non-exclusive contract with a private entity experienced in maintaining genealogical research databases to create at no cost to the state an online index to certificates and records of birth, marriage and update the indexes in exchange for allowing the private entity to also provide that index to its subscribers and customers. The bill delineates the information to be included in the online index.
Current embargo periods were established by a 2010 law: embargo periods of 75 years for birth; 25 years for death; 50 years for fetal death and 50 years for marriage.
The bill has been assigned to the has been assigned to the Health and Human Services Committee. No hearing date has yet been announced.
