Colorado has been maintaining birth records since 1910 when the government made it mandatory to begin recording vital events such as births.
An incomplete collection is available that dates all the way back to 1863, although those older records are filed at the county office in which the individual was born.
Colorado is a closed record state, which means that certified copies can only be requested by the person named on the certificate, as well as their immediate family members (including spouse) and lawyers representing them.

The office that handles birth records for the entire state of Colorado from 1910-2017 is The Department of Public Health and Environment, where they provide birth records, marriage records, divorce records, and death records.
