Dixie County, Florida Vital Records
 
Vital records consist of all the records a state or county maintains on the vital statistics of its residents. Four types of records are considered vital records: birth, death, marriage, and divorce. The information in a vital record is generally compiled very close to, or at the actual time of the life event, and is considered highly accurate. Vital records are also classified as primary source, meaning the vital statistics they contained are considered a primary source for purposes such as proving one’s identity. Vital records also make up the bulk of documentation that historians and genealogists use in their genealogy research.
 
Vital records for individuals in the state of Florida are usually stored and catalogued at the county recorder’s/clerk’s office, health departments, and local vital records offices. Most vital records are only available to individuals who can prove a tangible interest, and have fees associated with their processing and retrieval. Approved requests may be submitted by the parties named on the record, their immediate family members, or their legal representative.
