Nevada Birth Records


Nevada has been maintaining birth records since
July 1, 1911 when the state passed a law making it mandatory to record vital events such as births. Some records before 1911 are available, but they must be requested at the specific county office where the individual was born.

Nevada 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.

Unlike most other states, birth records in Nevada NEVER become public record.

Nevada Vital Records Office

The office that handles birth records from 1911-2024 for the entire state of Nevada is The Department of Health & Human Services, where they provide birth records, marriage records, divorce records, and death records.
