How to Obtain a Certified Idaho Vital Record (birth, marriage, death and divorce records)
The Idaho Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics maintains birth and death records filed from July 1911 to the present, and marriage and divorce records filed from May 1947 to the present. Some counties may have older birth, death, marriage, or divorce records in their files, but County files contain only records of vital events that occurred in that county.
Birth certificates are legally confidential in Idaho for 100 years. Death, stillbirth, marriage, and divorce certificates are legally confidential in Idaho for 50 years. Only immediate family members or their legal representatives may receive copies of these records
