Missouri Birth Records


Missouri has been maintaining birth records since January 1, 1910 when the government made it mandatory to begin recording vital events such as births.

Missouri 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.
