Vital Records

I would like to announce that statewide issuance of all Vital Records becomes effective January 3, 2017.

Statewide issuance of vital records allows Register of Deeds offices to issue records of birth, marriage, death, and divorce, from all Wisconsin counties, if the records are enabled in the Statewide Vital Records Information System.  This means citizens no longer have to go directly to the county they were born, married, divorced, or family was deceased in.

Not all vital records will be eligible for statewide issuance, some small numbers of special service records are excluded; and for those that are eligible, not all may be in the system and available for statewide issuance as of January 3, 2017.  The State Vital Records Office is working with Register of Deeds Offices to develop a process for loading specific vital records on demand until all historic records are converted.  You may contact your local Register of Deeds to receive more information about statewide issuance.

Statewide issuance will aid in providing an easier and more efficient method for serving our customers as well as provide better access to Wisconsin Vital Records.  I would like to thank the public for their support and patience as our office works through the implementation of this new service.

For more information, please contact the Register of Deeds at or call 715-726-7994.
