North Carolina Vital Records Information

North Carolina Vital Records
North Carolina began requiring statewide registration of births and deaths in March, 1913. Compliance was considered full by 1920. Marriage records are found recorded with the Register of Deeds in each county after 1868. Prior to that time marriages could be solemnized by numerous authorities, so records were sporadically kept. Marriage bonds are available for about half of the counties, and some marriages will be found in almost every county.
For birth records after 1913, and death records after 1930, write:
North Carolina Dept. Of Environment, Health and Natural Resources, Vital Records Section, 225 North McDowell Street, P.O. Box 29537, Raleigh, NC 27626-0537

For death records after 1913 and before 1930, write:
North Carolina State Archives, Archives and Records Section, 109 East Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601-2807

For earlier records, write to the register of deeds of the county in question.
