Oklahoma started keeping birth and death certificates in December 1908; however it was up to the family to record the information with an agent within the county where the event occurred. Families, more often than not, did not do this. It was not until 1933 that legislation required Doctors, hospitals and funeral homes to file information re the events with the vital statistics keeper. Though sometimes it was not done, it more than likely was after 1933. Birth and Death certificates are then transferred to the county courthouse, and then transferred to the Oklahoma Bureau of Vital Statistics. Copies are not kept at the courthouses. You can try spending the money sending for a certificate, but OK Vital Statistics Bureau is not noted for doing a thorough search.
