Is There a Duplicate Elsewhere?


If the records you are trying to find can't be located in their original location or were destroyed, is it possible that duplicate copies were recorded or filed elsewhere? For some local vital records, copies were filed at larger political levels, perhaps at the state or provincial level. Some local pastors submitted annual returns to a higher level church office.

Are there duplicates out there that you have not thought to research?
