How to Obtain North Dakota Death Certificates

The North Dakota is the state where there was a law which enabled all the citizens to get their vital events registered with their town offices. However, before the introduction of the law within the state, the town offices were maintaining unofficial records for their own ease. But the introduction of the law in the year 1893 ensured that each and every event taking place within the jurisdiction of the state of North Dakota must be registered. However, this legislation remained intact for only 2 years, after than it was repealed but just after 4 years again, the act was re-enacted in 1899. The state established a department named The State Department of Vital Records in 1923 and once the department began their operations, it ordered all the town and county officers to send the copies of prior birth and death information to them. The Marriage records prior to 1st July, 1925 were not made available to the department of vital statistics as they were not properly maintained by the state. However, marriages records after 1925 were properly maintained by the department of vital statistics as they ensured that each and every event of marriage, death and birth taking place within the state is registered and present within their records.
