Vital records consist of birth, death, marriage and divorce records. Although Ohio enacted a statute in 1856 -1857 requiring registration of births, deaths and marriages, many did not comply. A second law occurred in 1867 but, again, was not always followed. By 1908, the law was more clearly defined and kept. Any existing birth and death records from 1867 through December 19, 1908 are located at the [http://www.mahoningcountyoh.gov/DepartmentsAgencies/Departments/ProbateCourt/tabid/789/Default.aspx Mahoning County Probate Court.] The [http://www.odh.ohio.gov/ Ohio Department of Health] has birth records filed after December 20, 1908 and death records filed after January 1, 1954 while the [http://ohsweb.ohiohistory.org/index.shtml Ohio Historical Society] houses death records from December 20, 1908 through December 31, 1953. In addtion, the [http://www.ychd.com/Services/VitalStatistics.aspx Youngstown City Health District ]has births 1909 to present and deaths 1892 to present.

Section Example

Vital Records

See Ohio Vital Records for more information about Vital records in Ohio.

Vital records consist of birth, death, marriage and divorce records. Although Ohio enacted a statute in 1856 -1857 requiring registration of births, deaths and marriages, many did not comply. A second law occurred in 1867 but, again, was not always followed. By 1908, the law was more clearly defined and kept. Any existing birth and death records from 1867 through December 19, 1908 are located at the Mahoning County Probate Court. The Ohio Department of Health has birth records filed after December 20, 1908 and death records filed after January 1, 1954 while the Ohio Historical Society houses death records from December 20, 1908 through December 31, 1953. In addtion, the Youngstown City Health District has births 1909 to present and deaths 1892 to present.

Original marriage records are held at the office of the Mahoning County Probate Court with divorce records located with the Clerk of Court.
