Alaska Birth Records


Alaska has been maintaining birth records since 1913 when the state government began recording vital records such as births. Records before 1913 may be available because the Bureau of Vital Statistics has put together quite a big collection of delayed birth records, which are birth records created years after someone is born.

Alaska 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. Birth records become public once they are 100 years old, which is for births in 1924 and before.

Alaska Vital Records Office

The office that handles birth records for the entire state of Alaska is The Department of Health and Social Services, where they provide birth records, marriage records, divorce records, and death records.
