Wisconsin Vital Records Information

Wisconsin Vital Records
Wisconsin issued marriage applications as early as the 1820s in some counties, although most jurisdictions began maintaining them with county organization. In 1852, the state directed the counties to record births and deaths, a mandate generally ignored. In 1878 a similar law received more attention and adherence. However, it was 1907 before the State Bureau of Vital Statistics was established.
For birth, marriage, and death records from earliest to present, write:
Wisconsin State Department of Health, Vital Records Services, One West Wilson Street, P.O. Box 309, Madison, WI 53701-0309

Records can also be obtained by writing to the clerk of the county in question.
