Online Sources for Birth, Marriage, and Death Records
Online vital record resources for Alaska are sparse and where found, usually consist of indexes to birth, marriage, death and divorce records. The internet is a quick resource for locating the individual, with a date and place in an index. Record the information from the index then send for the original record where you can confirm the accuracy of the information and often find additional details.
Just because information is in print, does not make it true and accurate. Indexes and compiled records have errors and if possible, original records should always be consulted.
Order a Certificate
You may send for a copy of original records by contacting the Alaska Bureau of Vital Statistics. There are links for Birth Certificates, Stillborn Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Death Certificates, Divorce Certificates, Heirloom Birth Certificates and Heirloom Marriage Certificates.
