The Office of Vital Records is responsible for maintaining and issuing certified copies of vital records, including birth, death, fetal death certificates and certificates of birth resulting in stillbirth for events that occurred in Arizona. The Office of Vital Records officially began recording birth and death events in July, 1909. However, it maintains a sampling of delayed birth records of Arizona citizens (from 1855) and death records (from 1877) from other sources.

Each state maintains its own vital records. If you are looking for a birth or death record from another state, you must contact that state's vital records office. Birth and death records for events that occurred in other states are not available from Arizona's Office of Vital Records.
