Florida Vital Records Information

Florida Vital Records

Though statewide vital registration was mandated in 1899, birth and death records prior to 1917 are fragmented and inconsistent. Those after 1917 are deposited with the state's Bureau of Vital Statistics, as are most earlier birth and death registrations. That same office has jurisdiction over marriage records dated after 6 June 1927.

For birth and death records, and marriage records after 6 June 1927, write:

State of Florida Dept. of Health
Vital Statistics

1217 Pearl Street
P.O. Box 210
Jacksonville, FL 32231-0042
Tel: 904-359-6900
At the very top of the page, in the drop down menu, choose "Certificates, Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce" to see important information about records available, current fees, and forms that can be printed to order records.

For marriage records prior to 6 June 1927, write to the clerk of the county in question.
