Indiana has been maintaining birth records since October 1907 when the government made it mandatory to begin recording vital events such as births. Incomplete collections as far back as 1882 are available, but those requests must be made at the vital records office in the county where the individual was born.
Indiana 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.
