How to Obtain Idaho Death Certificates
There was no system of statewide registration of vital records like marriages, births and deaths in the state of Idaho before 1907. The state department of health did not feel the need of it before the year 1907. The county level registrations of these vital records were deemed enough by the state department of health at that time. Before 1907, the churches, midwives, mortuaries, and physicians were taken as the sources which were responsible to record the births, deaths, burials, marriages etc. The state government in 1907, made a legislation through which they made a department of health and welfare which was assigned the task to record all the vital records taking place within the whole state of Idaho. Through this, the county recorders (churches, physicians, maternity homes and etc) were made free from the responsibility of recording the records individually and after the introduction of the law of mandatory registrations of the vital events, all the vital records were registered directly with the state. All the data of the records of the vital events taking place within the state from 1907 till date is maintained by the department of health and welfare Idaho.
