Montana Birth Records


Montana has been maintaining birth records since 1915 when the state passed a law making it mandatory to record vital events such as births, although the state was keeping records as early as 1907. Unfortunately, not all births from 1907-1914 were recorded and no delayed records were ever made.

Montana 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.

Montana Vital Records Office
