Alabama Vital Records Information

Alabama Vital Records
An Act of 1881 provided that all births and deaths in the state of Alabama were to be registered with a county health officer, but the legislation was adhered to carelessly at best. State-level registration of births and deaths in Alabama began January 1st, 1908. The state, however, did not achieve a 90% completeness of birth registration until 1927, and of death registration until 1925. For birth and death records prior to 1908, and marriages prior to 1936, write to the clerk of the county in question. For birth and death records after 1908, and marriages after 1936, write:

Alabama State Dept. of Public Health

Note: Birth and Death records are closed for 125 years except to family. Information for marriages prior to 1936 must be obtained from the probate office in the county where the marriage license was issued. Information for divorces prior to 1950 must be obtained from the circuit court in the county where the divorce was granted.
