Vital Records in Alabama

Alabama is unique when it comes to issuing vital records with their implementation of a statewide system. Most other states, like California and Texas, force you to go to the specific county where the vital record was originally recorded.

If you were born in a certain county, that counties recorder/clerk would have your birth record. But what if you are doing research on a relative and you don’t know that information? It’s tough! Being able to obtain vital records from a central state department or a county office makes Alabama’s statewide system among the most convenient in the United States.
