Meudt: Statewide issuance of records effective Jan. 3
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Cynthia Meudt, Green County Register of Deeds, has announced that statewide issuance of vital records becomes effective Jan. 3, 2017. Statewide issuance of vital records allows register of deeds offices to issue records of birth, death, marriage and divorce records from all Wisconsin counties if the records are enabled in the Statewide Vital Records Information System.

Not all vital records will be eligible for statewide issuance; some small number of special service records are excluded. For those who are eligible, not all may be in the system and available for statewide issuance as of Jan. 3. The State Vital Records Office is working with register of deeds offices to develop a process for loading specific vital records on demand until all historic records are converted. Meudt advises individuals to contact their local register of deeds to receive more information about statewide issuance.

Statewide issuance will aid in providing an easier and more efficient method for serving customers and will provide better access to Wisconsin vital records.
