States: North Carolina: Forsyth
While I am not referring specifically to Forsyth County, NC I am aware of at least two reasons for the lack of on line records on a counyty basis. First,is lack of funds to prepare the data for posting. Second, it comes down to who is the Register of Deeds in the County. Several years back Guilford County had a nice website including vital statistics (Births, Deaths, Marriages,etc).When the Registrar lost the election and was replaced, the new Registrar removed the website, citing "fear of lawsuits". Then, when a new person came into the office, part of the previous vital statsitice were put back on line.
These reasons could account for the lack of information available on line.Indeed, some Registrars place restrictions on the types of information available during an office visit in spite of the ostensible nature of the records.
