How to Obtain Oklahoma Death Certificates

There was no system of statewide registration of the vital records like births, deaths and marriages in the state of Oklahoma before the legislation was made to make it official in October, 1908. The legislation made in 1908 was not been given equal importance by the town offices as they were been asked to send the copies of the records to the state office of health department. The legislation was failed for more than 2 decades until and unless the government decided to make it simple and fast. In this context, the legislation was again reinstated in 1917, but still there were flaws on the part of the state government and other factors due to which there act was not fully compliance and only 80% success was achieved in a time period of more than a decade. In the state of Oklahoma the county clerks are not eligible to provide any certificate of the vital event because it is now the responsibility of the state Vital Records Section to provide the information asked by any individual regarding the vital event (death, birth and marriage) took after the year 1908 when registration of the vital events made mandatory by the state government.

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.
