Vital records are the legal records documenting a vital event, such as a birth, death, marriage, Oregon Registered Domestic Partnership, divorce, or fetal death. Birth certificates are the primary documents used to establish identity.
In Oregon, the Center for Health Statistics is responsible for issuing certified copies of vital records for events that occurred within the state of Oregon. The Center for Health Statistics has birth and death records dating from 1903, marriage records from 1906, and divorce certificates (not decrees) from 1925.
