P.O. Box 129, Vanceburg, KY 41179-0129, Telephone: (606) 796-3062 .
Birth & Death
The Kentucky Vital Statistics Office has on file Birth Certificates and Death Certificates from 1911 to present. The office has no records of births occurring prior to the above date except delayed records of births for persons born before 1911 which have been established by affidavits and documentary evidence. The Kentucky Historical Society has collected and filed some birth and death records that were gathered in various counties of Kentucky under an act of the General Assembly of 1850. These records cover a period from 1851 to 1862, when registration under this Act was discontinued. The law was re-enacted in the mid 1870's, with many counties not participating or dropping the program after a few years.
Marriage and Divorce
The Kentucky Vital Statistics Office has on file marriage and divorce certificates from June 1958 to present. Copies of marriage certificates prior to this date may be obtained from the Lewis County Clerk and divorce certificates can be obtained from the Lewis County Circuit Court.
