Missouri Vital Records Information

Missouri Vital Records
Vital records were kept on a statewide basis beginning in August, 1909. The city of St. Louis, however, began recording deaths in 1850 and births in 1870. It is estimated that about 60% compliance was met in these earlier recordings for that city. Marriage records are recorded with the county Recorder of Deeds.
For birth and death records after August, 1909, write:
Missouri Department of Health
Bureau of Vital Records
P.O. Box 570
Jefferson City, MO 65102-0570

For marriage records, and for birth and death records before August, 1909, write to the recorder of deeds of the county in question.
For earlier births and deaths in St. Louis, write:
St. Louis Vital Records
P.O. Box 14702
St. Louis, MO 63178
