OK2Explore Vital Records

OK2Explore Oklahoma State Vital Records Index
The Oklahoma State Department of Health has recently introduced its new OK2Explore Oklahoma State Vital Records Index.
For genealogists, knowing when someone was born or died can help determine whether or not you have the right person.  The new vital records index includes death records occurring more than 5 years ago and birth records occurring more than 20 years ago. In 2016, the Oklahoma legislature passed legislation that now allows full death records to be public after 50 years and birth records to be public after 125 years. The Oklahoma Genealogical Society thanks Kelly Baker, OSDH Registrar of Vital Records for her leadership of this project which was delivered six months ahead of schedule.
