1943 provides for the filing of delayed BCs for persons who were born prior to the
legislation date, or whose births were not recorded at the time of birth. Death records
are available for the years 1900 to present.
Fax requests for birth/death records using a bank card can be sent to 1-(800)423-1108.
Application forms are available on the State website shown above.
Mail requests take at least 3 weeks to process.
Certified copies of verification of divorce and marriage records are available from
the State as follows: marriage records for 1900-1939 and 1975-present; dissolution
records for 1851-1939 and 1968-present. Verifications for other years must be obtained
from the county where the divorce was decreed or the marriage license was obtained.
The county may be determined from a partial index of records at the State level. The
index covers marriages from 1900-1939 and 1975-1984 and divorces from 1968-1984.
