Kansas Birth Records


Kansas has been maintaining birth records since
July 1, 1911 when the government made it mandatory to begin recording vital records such as births. Incomplete collections as far back as 1860 are available, but those requests must be made at the vital records office in the county where the individual was born.

Kansas 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.

Kansas Vital Records Office

The office that handles birth records from 1911-2022 for the entire state of Kansas is The Department of Health and Environment, where they provide birth records, marriage records, divorce records, and death records.
