Wayne County, MI Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce Records

Wayne County vital recordsWayne County, the most populated county in Michigan due to the county seat being the city of Detroit, requires staff assistance when searching through most of the county's vital records. Two researchers are allowed in the limited office space at once, and all records kept are from the county itself, excluding the city of Detroit, which has its own vital records department through the Department of Health & Wellness Promotion. To inquire about or obtain records that extend beyond the scope of years the city has available, individuals are directed to the State of Michigan Vital Records Office. To obtain copies of Wayne County death records, which are available from 1867, marriage records from 1900, and divorce records from 1891, without physically going to the office, the county recommends VitalChek. In addition, the City of Detroit recommends this service. Most vital records for the city begin in the early 1900s.
