Birth certificates issued by the Utah Office of Vital Records and Statistics in 1911 are now indexed online! Access the Utah Birth Certificate Index to search names and view digital images for free. All birth certificates at least 100 years old are public, even if not online or indexed yet.

In addition to identity and proof of citizenship, the registration of births assists with monitoring public health issues and the programs created to alleviate them. The Office of Vital Records and Statistics transfers original permanent records to the Utah State Archives and Records Service due to the Inspection of Vital Records Act in 1998. The name index is a collaborative effort of volunteers and staff of the State Archives, and includes the child’s full name, parents’ full names, date of birth, sex and county.

The Utah State Digital Archives provides over 1.5 million images of historical records online and free to the public.
