West Virginia Birth Records

Births after 1900 often have restrictions on who can see them. Each state has its own laws. One state may have births for some years available to the public while other states may limit access to living relatives.

Statewide registration of births began in 1917 in West Virginia and was generally complied with by 1925. The counties have copies of these records.

The current law for the state registration of births in West Virginia is a restriction on births to only immediate family members for births within the last 100 years. However, the counties of West Virginia also recorded birth records, and their records are online up to 1930.
