County research...

Difficulty Level - 5

Researching in Converse County WY is not an easy task. The State of Wyoming has chosen to 'protect' its vital records for a very long time.

But all is not lost! There are many resources available to researchers and hopefully I will be able to identify them for you here. And if you see I am missing something, please send me a message!

Additionally they state: After fifty years (50 years) from the date of the event these records may be obtained by anyone providing enough information to locate the record in question.
