How to Obtain Nevada Death Certificates
The state of Nevada had no prior systematic statewide registration of the vital events took place within the jurisdiction of the state of Nevada. Only the town or city offices were responsible to register and maintain the records of vital events (birth, death and marriages) taking place within their specific counties for their personal as well as public convenience. Then when the US states were changing their shapes in the form of statewide administrations, legislation was made to make the vital events registration mandatory on every citizen. The official registration began in 1911. There are also some previous records before 1911 which are still intact or in custody of the town officers rather being available at the Section of Vital Statistics which is the central point for registering and maintaining all the records of vital events taking place throughput the state. There was no formal index of the data prior to 1911, while the index prepared after the year 1911 also has restricted access to it as well. Only if a person has got any personal interest or if he/she can ensure any right on it then only in such conditions, an individual can access to the index.
