Kentucky Birth Index, 1911-1999 Temporarily Removed

I received the following message from Ancestry.com:

The Kentucky Birth Index, 1911-1999 has been temporarily de-published on Ancestry.com. The company recently received communication from the Kentucky Department of Library and Archives indicating that the copy of these records received by Ancestry contained names that should not have been included in the database. At the request of the state the database was removed for the time being. Ancestry.com is working with the state quickly to obtain a properly redacted index and when received, will work hard to re-publish this valuable index.

  1. I shall be glad when Kentucky again will allow Ancestry to put their birth records on line. I just wish that all the states would put their vital records on line, it would be such a help for genealogists.

  2. The Kentucky Birth Index is a very valuable web site for tracking descendants of extended families. The most valuable birth index on Ancestry.com is the Texas Birth Index since you can do many more intutitive searches or on various pieces of known family names, etc. The California birth index is the least valuable in this respect.
