How To Obtain An Oklahoma Birth Or Death Certificate

Certified copies of Oklahoma birth and death records are available at the Oklahoma State Department of Health Vital Records Service. Birth certificates and death certificates were first recorded by the Division of Vital Statistics in the latter part of October 1908.

Oklahoma birth and death records prior to 1908 might be found at one of the following locations;
Oklahoma Historical Society, Dawes Commission Report or the United States Census Bureau.

For Out-of-State Birth or Death Certificates, please see the National Center for Health Statistics' site on
Where to Write for Vital Records.

How To Request A Birth Or Death Certificate.

Birth records are confidential and qualified applicants for birth records include the registrant, next-of-kin, or authorized agent, who must provide a statement that he or she is acting in the interest of the registrant. Certified copies of death certificates are available to all applicants upon completion of an application and payment of the fee charged for a search of the records. The records are not open for public inspection. County health departments do not maintain these records.

Certified Copies of birth and death records may be obtained by either:
