The vital events that were been recorded by the town offices on the behalf of the state were inclusive of births, deaths and marriages. Their intentions were to keep and maintain records for their own towns. Then after a long time, the statewide registration of the vital events was mandated through a legislation in 1899 which made it mandatory for every citizen of the state to get their vital events registered with their town offices firstly and then getting them registered with the state office named State of Florida Dept. of Health. There was some non-compliance of the act by the state officials due to which there came some problems like collection or managing problems of the records of the vital events. However, the records of the vital events after 1917 are maintained by the state's Bureau of Vital Statistics. Now, Bureau of Vital Statistics is the place where all the data of vital events is maintained by the state.
