Vital Records NC vital records are a matter of public record. Anyone can request uncertified copies of your birth, marriage, divorce or death information with no questions asked. NC is one of the few states I've come across where this is the case. Restrictions are only placed when making a request for a certified copy.

This does not apply to data/information that is on the county websites at the this time. It would be effective from the date that the Procedures are passed by the membership.

All effort will be taken to avoid posting information concerning living persons.
* The following guidelines applies to Vital Records:
+ Records of births, deaths, marriages, and divorce during the last 80 years should not be posted.
+ Records of deaths for any year may be posted, but care should be taken to honor family wishes regarding such postings.

Idea
An index of surnames in a given year of vital records would be helpful to researchers.
