The state of Alaska didn’t gave any importance to maintaining proper records of births, deaths and marriages until they found other states taking initiatives for maintaining such records for their own good. But finally, in the year 1913, the Alaskan government decided to properly maintain vital records of the state which includes births, deaths and marriages. In the mean time, the government collected all the records of the births from the churches so that they can issue the certificate to the holder who was deprived of that basic facility. This all was conducted through the Bureau of Vital Statistics and this was done in order to provide the birth certificates to the people who were not officially registered with the state records. This bureau is still working for the same purpose in the same manner. The bureau is working in order to register all the births, marriages and death records with themselves.
