OKLAHOMA BIRTH AND DEATH CERTIFICATES
Oklahoma Vital Records maintains the records for births and deaths that occurred in the state of Oklahoma.
Oklahoma began filing birth records in October of 1908. It was not mandatory, however, that these records be filed until 1917. Because birth records were not required for identification as they are today, not all records prior to 1940 were placed on file consistently.
Oklahoma began filing death records in October of 1908. It was not mandatory, however, that these records be filed until 1917. Because death records were not required for identification as they are today, not all records prior to 1940 were placed on file consistently.
