How to Obtain Alaska Death Certificates

The state of Alaska began recording births, deaths and marriages in 1913. The Bureau of Vital Statistics has assembled an extensive collection of church records in order to create delayed birth certificates for people who did not have an official record at birth. The bureau will conduct searches of these records, but requests will be denied if the purpose is genealogical.

For births, marriage and death records after 1913, write:

Department of Health and Social Services
Bureau of Vital Statistics
P.O. Box 110675
Juneau, AK 99811-0675
Tel: 907-465-3392
Fax: 907-465-2925

For birth, marriage and death records prior to 1913, write the office above or consult the original congregation an ancestor may have been affiliated with. These earlier records will usually be ecclesiastical in nature.

For prior records, write to the clerk of the borough in question.
