Some counties kept birth and death records as early as 1891, although most did not start until after statehood in 1907. The early records, which are quite incomplete, are at county courthouses. Contact details for county courts can be found on individual [[Oklahoma|county pages]]. The Family History Library has copied some of the vital records of the Superintendent of Public Health in a few counties.
The statewide registration of births and deaths began in [[Oklahoma]] in 1908 and was generally complied with by 1930. You can write to:
