Death Indexes

To improve historical Vital Statistics access and service, all Vital Statistics requests and payments are now made through our online payment system.


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.

Death registrations from 1870-1971 are available at the Provincial Archives of Alberta.

Vital statistic indexes are yearly summaries of vital events that contain basic information such as name, location, year, and registration number. The indexes are used to locate registrations.
