This is a list of Washington DC | District of Columbia Genealogy Records Online at FamilySearch. These include birth indexes, marriage indexes, death indexes, as well as indexes & images of census, military, and other records.

 

FamilySearch is a free website but visitors need to create an account to search many of the collections. It’s easy to register for a free account at FamilySearch.

 

Most of these collections only contain images. We’ve tried to specify which collections have searchable name indexes (easiest to search quickly).

If you can’t find someone in an indexed collection, try scanning through collections of scanned images (the old-fashioned way).

Some links take you to the index/images, others to a catalog description where you will need to select the “here” button or select the camera icon. If there is a key above the camera icon, that means the collection is currently only viewable at a FamilySearch affiliate library, and the collection is in queue to be released to the public. We’ve tried to omit those collections in this list.
