Oklahoma Vital Records Information

Oklahoma Vital Records
Statewide recording of births and deaths for Oklahoma began in October 1908, although compliance was incomplete for as long as two decades. Registration was mandated in 1917, but it was another decade before 90-percent compliance was attained. Although county clerks record births and deaths and provide information on request, certificates are available only from the state Vital Records Section.
For birth and death records from October 1908, write:
Oklahoma Department of Health, Division of Vital Records, 1000 Northeast 10th Street, Room 117, P.O. Box 53551, Oklahoma City, OK 73152-3551

For marriage records from earliest to present, write to the clerk of the county in question.
