Pre-1910 St. Louis City
Birth Register Transcripts


Read a Brief History of Vital Records in Missouri


The St. Louis City Recorder and Registrar provides Certified Transcript services for

Pre-1910 St. Louis City Birth Registers.

Photocopying Birth Register originals for the public is not possible.

  • St. Louis City's Birth Registers are
    handwritten ledgers measuring up to 22 inches by 19 inches per page.
  • Many have entries extending over two pages.
  • The paper is very frail.
  • The ink on many pages has faded.

Instead, Vital Records staff transcribe entries from the Registers and produce typed Certified facsimiles.


Birth Register Transcript Service subject to:

Retrieving information from the original Birth Register and producing the transcript is labor intensive. Birth Register Transcript requests may not receive same day service.
