How to Obtain Nebraska Death Certificates

Registration of the birth and death records in the state of Nebraska began on a statewide level in 1904. Registration of the marriages records in the state of Nebraska began in the year 1909. However, the registration procedure was not considered as authentic for the next 15-20 years. The county offices were doing the job of registering the vital events for their own ease. The county offices were not performing that well in collecting and maintaining all the data of vital records which they should not have done in those days. However, nowadays, the town or city offices have been playing a vital role in collecting and maintaining the records of vital events in the state. These days, the Nebraska Department of Health is the place where the complete records of the vital events (births, deaths and marriages) of the state of Nebraska are collected and properly maintained.

However, for prior records (before the year 1904), you can contact the 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.
