The Following genealogical information is available directly from Alabama agencies:

Alabama vital records include birth, death, marriage and divorce records. Alabama law did not require the recording of birth or death certificates until 1908. The statewide recording of marriage certificates began in 1936 and divorce certificates in 1950. The Alabama Department of Archives and History has indexes to those records, but original certificates must be obtained from the Alabama Center for Health Statistics.

Prior to 1908 some vital records were recorded at the county level. Generally this practice began around 1880. Most birth records list sex, race, place and date of birth of individual but no name. The names of parents and physician/midwife attending are also sometimes listed. Most death records list name of individual, and place of death, age at death and attending physician. Some include place of burial and cause of death. Most marriage records include names of husband and wife, presiding official at marriage, and signatures of two people who posted the marriage bond. Most divorce records list only date of divorce and names of the parties and officials involved. Not all records are complete. Each county had vital events which went unrecorded or records which were lost or damaged. Many courthouses have burned and the records they contained may be limited. Some counties separated vital records by race, with records for whites and African-Americans recorded in separate books. The original designations recorded on the volumes (White, Black, Colored) have been maintained on the records listed.
