Minnesota Vital Records Information

Minnesota Vital Records
Minnesota vital records registration began in earnest in 1870, and was the responsibility of each county for the next thirty-seven years. However, some counties have records for earlier events, particularly marriages. In 1907, the state of Minnesota took over the responsibility of keeping birth and death records.
For births records prior to 1900, death records prior to 1908, and marriage records in general, write:
District Court Administrator
County District Court
(County Seat), Minnesota

For birth records after 1900, and death records after 1908, write:
Minnesota Department of Health
Section of Vital Statistics Registration
717 Delaware Street, S.E.
P.O. Box 9441
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55440-9441
