How to Obtain Colorado Death Certificates

There was no standardized system of statewide registration of vital records like marriages, births and deaths in the state of Colorado before 1885. Before 1885, the churches, midwives, mortuaries, and physicians were the sources which were responsible to record the births, deaths, burials, marriages etc taking place within the state of Colorado. Let’s not forget one more fact that after the legislation was mandated in the year 1885, these special places and organization continue helping the state for the perspective of registering the vital records (births, deaths and marriages). The state government in 1885, made a legislation through which they assigned the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment duty of recording and maintaining all the vital records of the state of Colorado. The success was achieved in registering the vital events after long struggle and continuous efforts of the administration in 1910.After the year 1910, there was no concept within the state of Colorado of registering the vital records with respective towns of the state in fact, after the year 1910, all the vital records were registered directly with the state. However, after 1910, still some marriages records were maintained by individual county clerks and they were the only custodian of the marriage records in the state as well.

Death records or death certificates (MCCD), Are a substantial part of the legal process. This significant information is vital to state and local government official. The state death record database contains information about a person's death, location, date, time, residence. Sometimes the names of the mother and father, and Even the physician who declares vital statistics and the cause of a person's death. Death records have long been used to help with ancestry, research. They are considered to be "primary source" records, because the information is recorded by an eye witness, at the time the death takes place.
