Births between 1931 to 1969
Step ONE: Index An online birth index from 1931 to 1969 is available on the subscription database, Ancestry.com. This subscription is free for Family History Centers: West Virginia, Births Index, 1853–1969
TIPS: If you can’t find your individual, try the following:
- If you did not get results, type in less information about the person. Try only search for the first and last name of the person.
- If you have too many hits, try adding information including approximate birth date and the county
Step TWO: Certificate If you find a match for your individual in the index and the birth is less than 100 years old, you can order a copy of the certificate from the state of West Virginia, if you are:
- The Person on the Certificate
- The Parents and Grandparents of Person on the Certificate
- The Wife or Husband of the Person on the Certificate
- The Children and Grandchildren of the Person on the Certificate
- The Brothers or Sisters
- Anyone who has Legal interest in the Certificate
A copy of the birth record cannot be obtained by anyone else until after 100 years from the date of the birth.
