New Birth Records Now Available

Filed under: Resources — ottokd @ 1:48 pm

Since the new year has turned over, the 1908 non-public birth records are now open for viewing and/or purchase.

What is a “non-public” birth record, you ask?  The Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (MN Statutes, chapter 13.10, Subd 2) prevents MHS from making available certain birth certificates, such as the records of out of wedlock births, for a period of 100 years.  Once the 100 years is over, they will become available, as the 1908 records now are.
