Ray County Missouri
|Pre 1883, birth records are NOT available. The county nor the state did require a record to be
kept at the county or state level. A baptism record or family Bible with a birth recorded is the only available
resource for a birth record pre 1883.
Between the years of 1883 and 1890 Ray county has a few births records. A transcription can be found at the Missouri State Archives . This is a transciption and the Ray County Genealogical Association has re-transcribed and corrected errors in the transciption of names, which has been published in our publication Ray County Reflections through several issues. If you wish to purchase a complete book of this transcription with corrections, please email us.
Birth records are available at the state level beginning in 1910 at Vital Records
