Find Birth, Marriage and Death Records
To improve historical Vital Statistics access and service and for the preservation of these important documents, all Vital Statistics requests and payments must be made through our online payment system. Original Vital Statistics records are not accessible in the Sandra Thomson Reading Room.
The How to Order Historical Vital Statistics guide can help you do this.
Multiple vital statistics may be included in one order; please refer to the Quick Guide to Multiple Requests for help.
Birth, marriage, and death records are called Vital Statistics. The Provincial Archives of Alberta holds hundreds of thousands of vital statistic records.
The Provincial Archives of Alberta provides access to:
- birth records that are 120 years or older (from the date of birth)
- marriage records that are 75 years or older (from the date of marriage)
- death records that are 50 years or older (from the date of death)
- stillbirth records that are 75 years or older (from the date of stillbirth)
