Idaho Public Records

You can get almost all vital records and statistics from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. The earliest records available for births and deaths is July 1911. The oldest marriage or divorce records available are from May 1947. Birth records are considered confidential for 100 years while death, marriage and divorce records are confidential for 50 years. After that time period all records are considered public records and available by anyone for genealogical research.

Records are usually processed in 5-7 days after receiving the order. Rush orders will cut the time down to 2-3 days at a cost of an additional $5 dollar fee. A computer printed death certificate costs $14 dollars while all other records cost $13. Certified photocopies cost $18 dollars and $19 dollars respectively.
