Bureau of Vital Statistics
The Alaska Bureau of Vital Statistics is responsible
for managing vital records in the State of Alaska which include
birth, death, fetal death, divorce and marriage certificate data,
along with reports of adoption.
Under Alaska law, all Vital Statistics records are
strictly confidential until they become public records. Births
become public records 100 years after the event; deaths, marriages,
and divorces become public records 50 years after the event.
Certified copies of vital event certificates are
available by choosing a link under Certificates at the right.
Please be advised that copies are available only for those events
which have occurred in Alaska.
For events which occurred outside of Alaska, requests
must be sent directly to the appropriate state.
For additional information regarding an Alaska vital
record please contact our Record Processing Unit in Juneau at
