Wyoming Birth Records


Wyoming has been maintaining birth records since July 1909 when the state passed a law making it mandatory to record vital events such as births. Unfortunately, not very many counties kept birth records before 1909 (as many other states did).

Wyoming 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.

Wyoming Vital Records Office

The office that handles birth records from 1909-2024 for the entire state of Wyoming is The Department of Health Services, where they provide birth records, marriage records, divorce records, and death records. Birth records become public once they are 100 years old, which is for births in 1924 and before.
