What is in the Collection?

This collection consists of a name index and image browse of Idaho Death Certificates from 1911 to 1937 and an index only of Idaho Death Certificates from 1938 - 1961, as well as a name index and image browse of Idaho Death Certificates from 1860-1960. The 1911-1937 certificates are arranged numerically by file number, with a rough chronological arrangement by date of death. The records were acquired from the Department of Health & Welfare in Boise. The 1911 to 1937 collection also includes 38 certificates from the years 1890-1910.

Statewide registration of deaths was required by law in 1911. The records are held at the State of Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. Earlier death records that may exist are held at the county level. Statewide registration of deaths began in 1911, and was generally complied with by the early 1920’s.
