Wisconsin Vital Records



What are the earliest filed vital records?
Registration of events prior to 1907 was voluntary and vital records were not filed for most events.
It has been estimated that less than 50% of the records were prepared and submitted for permanent filing before that time.
Records are not on file for events that occurred before the dates listed in the following table.
Divorce certificates from any county are not available before October 1907.
