Databases & Inventories

 

The databases and inventories below are designed to help you navigate our large collection of records. At this time, we do not have an online card catalog-style database for our entire collection and though many of our record series have an index, like birth, marriage and death certificates, land records and corporation records, research copies are only available on microfilm in the reading room.

If you are researching a court case, please contact the court first. While we do house many cases from around the state, most of the courts have retained the indices and we will need the county, name of the court and docket or case number to locate the file.

 

Death Certificate Database

This index begins with death certificates filed in 1909 and ends with death certificates filed more than 50 years ago (work in progress).

 

Digital Collections 

Many of our records have been digitized to make them easier to access. Or, they are “born digital;” that is, they were created as a digital document (report, photo, map, slideshow, etc.) and have never been printed as physical items.

 

Historical Collections 

In addition to the records of Wyoming government, the Wyoming State Archives has collected a small but significant group of manuscript collections documenting various aspects of life in Wyoming. These include personal papers (letters, diaries, photographs, scrapbooks, writings), business records, and records of clubs and organizations. A small library of books, pamphlets, and other published items about the state is also maintained as a reference collection to aid in the study of Wyoming history.
