Researching Death, Marriage, and Birth Records

Last modified: 3/1/2012 9:47 AM

Methods for researching birth, death, and public marriage records have changed due to the passage of Senate Bill 1614, Chapter 712.  The only way to research these records is to use the computers in our Public Search area in our main office during regular business hours.  Note that in order to view any information associated with a specific record, you must enter ALL of the following information, spelled exactly as it was entered on the certificate:

Birth Records

  • Infant first, middle and last name
  • Date of Birth
  • Mother's maiden name

Death Records

  • Decedent's first, middle and last name
  • Date of death

Marriage Records

  • Groom's  / Party A's first, middle, and last name
  • Bride's / Party B's first, middle, and last name

Please Note:  Due to passage of SB1614 by the California Legislature, signed by Governor Davis on September 20, 2002, ALL Birth and Death Indexes were removed from the Internet on January 1, 2003. We regret any inconvenience the removal of the Birth and Death Indexes may cause.
