Wyoming. Big, sprawling state. Modest, sprawling archives. 

The official State Archives page is mostly pointers to other online and offline sources. But there are several databases indexes and online collections that are valuable resources in their own right, including: 

  • Death Certificates Database --1909-1939 (a work in progress, currently with last names A-E)

  • State Directories

  • Board of Architects

  • Wyoming Libraries Database

  • Women's Organization Collections

  • Maps (some real beauties) and Photos (login with public as your username and password)

Don't forget the Rocky Mountain Online Archive, covering Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming.
