Why are marriage, birth and death records only from select states? With technology what it is, I would think that most of those records should be available. I am practically at a stand-still because of such limitations.
The historical records market works with what is called 'collections'. A collection is a group of records in SuperSearch. For example: the 1940 census is a collection, MyHeritage family trees is a collection. A collection is different from a category. An example of a category is “Birth, Marriage and Death” records.
Those documents and collections are made public by different organisations and governamental offices, according to their own laws and rules, for the purpose of genealogy research. This can be federal, by state, municipality, etc. Note that MyHeritage and other genealogy websites are not related or connected to government offices. The documents are made public, bought and transcribed by different organisations.
Therefore, those collections might be limited to some state, or not containing all the years, etc.
Taking the opportunity, I would like to recommend you taking a look at this FAQ article linked below on how to better use SuperSearch:
I am happy for other members to see my family tree, but I do not want anybody except immediate family to have access to info about the living members of my family. Woud it be possible to place blocks individually on people in my tree to protect their info from strangers?
Somebody, very distantly related (back in late 1700s), has copied all the info about my family including photos of myself a particulars of my daughter and her family. I have removed this info from my site now, and requested that they are removed from the other tree.
I managed to get in touch with some 2nd and 3rd cousins and their families, who I have not seen for 50 -60 years, and for their benefit I would like the info about living people to be there.
Thanks for your answer, that makes me feel bit better. I know I can cancel this person's access now, but that is bit late. I would like to be able to make a different setting between close people who I know and trust, and very distantly related people, who I invited to my tree and they are welcome to all the info about long dead ancestors, but not more recent ones; I do not really like info about my parents and their siblings to be copied and put on other trees either. Some of their decendants might get upset about that.
Sadly I am now considering to make my tree private as well.
I have invited some people who accepted, but did not allow me access to their tree, even that by our "smart matches" we should be very closely related, but I do not know who they are. I think the system would be more fair if person who gets access into another tree would automatically grant access into their tree. Basically, you could not take without giving.
