How to Obtain Arizona Death Certificates

The early years of the 19th century can be said as the years when almost each and every state of United States was transforming its shape in an administrative aspect. All the states were striving hard to get themselves in the pace in order to enter in the development context. Maintenance of the proper records of the vital events such as marriages, birth and death was a major factor of consideration for majority of the state at the time when they were transforming themselves into administrative states. There were no prior records maintained in almost all the states. Same was the situation in the state of Arizona which started its statewide registration of marriages, births and deaths in July, 1909. It is worth noting aspect that the Office of Vital Records worked hard to get some of the past records by searching them from different resources such as churches, maternity homes and etc. They successful searched the data from the year 1884 to 1887. Right now, except the marriages records; which are still to be registered with county Superior Court clerk's office, births and deaths records are registered and properly maintained by the state of Arizona.
