and Where to Get Them
The state of Alaska began recording
births, deaths and marriages in 1913. The Bureau of Vital Statistics has
assembled an extensive collection of church records in order to create
delayed birth certificates for people who did not have an official
record at birth. The bureau will conduct searches of these records, but
requests will be denied if the purpose is genealogical.
For births, marriage and death records after 1913, write:
Department of Health and Social Services
Bureau of Vital Statistics
P.O. Box 110675
Juneau, AK 99811-0675
For birth, marriage and death records prior to 1913,
write the office above or consult the original congregation an ancestor
may have been affiliated with. These earlier records will usually be
ecclesiastical in nature.
