Cross County, Arkansas Vital Records
Vital records are documents of life events that are recorded by all levels of government. The documents include birth and death certificates, marriage and divorces licenses, and sometimes civil unions or domestic partnerships.
Vital records are used for statistical recording and also in fields of research. Specific research for genealogy or case studies is applicable. Many companies provide searches for the vital records at a cost, but the documents can also be obtained through various government agencies.
The Arkansas Division of Vital Records is responsible for maintaining birth, death, marriage and death records. The department keeps the coupons at the bottom of the marriage and divorce records, and the actual certificate is kept at the local office of the county clerk of courts.
You may request a certificate search at the Vital Records Office at 4815 W. Markham Street in Little Rock. Walk-in customers are served in the same day. The office is open during the week with normal business hours. The office telephone numbers are 501-661-2336 and 800-637-9314.
