How to Obtain Indiana Death Certificates

There was no kind of statewide vital records registration available in the state of Indiana before 1882 when the town wise registration of the vital records started. Through legislation, the state made it mandatory to get the birth, marriages and deaths registered with State department of health after 1907 for births and for deaths in 1900. Marriage records were already made mandatory on a county level since early 1800. Although many records are still not available after long and tiring efforts on part of the state department of health in recent years but still the department is working with the same name and trying to ensure that all the records must be collected from all over the state, from each and every county. This is the reason why the copies of the vital records are not available to everyone in general.

For birth records and certificates before 1907, death records and certificates before 1900, and for marriage records and certificates, you can write to the county clerk of the county in question who is responsible for the issuance of the certificates and collection of and maintenance of the older vital statistics records with himself.

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.
