A new Provo Labs company, World Vital Records, launched last night, according to blog posts by David Lifferth and Kory Hoopes, developers on the project:
This initial site has 3 vital record indexes to start with: Social Security Death Index, Maine Death Records, and Louisiana Slave Index. Total, these indexes represent about 77 million names. The “global search” page returns the results from each index listed in alphabetical order.
This new venture, Paul Allen clearly expects to become the number two genealogy website on the internet, which he surely has the experience to bring about!
Good luck to World Vital Records!
