Parade of States -- online digital genealogy resources -- Arkansas

Picture from the Arkansas History Commission

Arkansas is not known for its online digital collections but the number of records in increasing regularly. Across the U.S. there is a substantial difference between the collections being digitized by the various states. There are considerably more resources online than those shown in the lists below, but most are not digitized and are indexes or transcribed lists.

  • Arkansas County Marriages FamilySearch Record Search index and images of marriages recorded in counties of Arkansas. Index and images are currently available for the following counties: Ashley, Baxter, Boone, Chicot, Clay, Crittendon, Desha, Drew, Fulton, Jackson, Johnson, Lee, Logan, Madison, Monroe, Montgomery, Nevada, Perry, and Pike. There may be related records included with marriage records. Once an image of a marriage record is located, browse through preceding and following images to check for related records. This project was indexed in partnership with the Arkansas Genealogical Society. The collection is 26% complete as of 17 August 2009.

  • Arkansas Genealogical Society E-zine Quoting from the Website, "The Arkansas Genealogical Society began to publish the E-zine (electronic magazine) to keep individuals informed about information, activities, publications, and web links. This E-zine is a supplement to, not a replacement of, the quarterly publication, the Arkansas Family Historian or to the AGS Newsletter."

  • Documenting Arkansas (Arkansas History Commission) Documenting Arkansas is an online digital archive of documents, visuals, maps, broadsides, pamphlets, and three-dimensional objects significant to Arkansas history and culture, from the holdings of the Arkansas History Commission, Arkansas's state archives.

There always seems to be more, every time I keep looking. If you know of any more resources please let me know and I will include them in supplement posts.
